Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) emerged as a rising star in the Republican Party back in December when she came out of nowhere to become President Trump’s fiercest congressional defender this side of Jim Jordan. Clearly exasperated by the un-American charade put on by the Democrats, she hammered witnesses with questions that showed the public what a bizarre, unconstitutional affair the impeachment hearings really were.
In her Republican National Convention address on Wednesday night, Stefanik was only too happy to remind Americans about those dark months when the Democratic Party tried to undo the 2016 election.
“Since his first day in office, President Trump has fought tirelessly to deliver results for all Americans, despite the Democrats’ baseless and illegal impeachment sham and the media’s endless obsession with it,” Stefanik said. “This attack was not just on the president, it was an attack on you — your voice and your vote.”
She went on to say that, despite what you may hear from the media, Trump’s support is diverse and widespread throughout the country.
“We know what’s at stake in this historic election. Americans from all walks of life are unified in support of our President. It’s why more Republican women than ever are running for office this year,” Stefanik said.
“President Trump is working to safely re-open our Main Street economy. He understands that the engine of our country is fueled by the ingenuity and determination of American workers, entrepreneurs, and small businesses. Joe Biden wants to keep them locked up in the basement and crush them with $4 trillion in new taxes,” Stefanik continued.
Since joining Congress, Stefanik has not exactly been what you’d call the president’s most vehement supporter. But the impeachment hearings…well, we can’t say for sure, but it’s almost as if the Democratic Party’s stunning overreach radicalized her into a true blue MAGA lawmaker. And in that way, we can only imagine that Stefanik has a lot in common with many Americans who were watching her speak on Wednesday night. It’s one thing to dislike Trump or even take issue with some of his policies if you’re a little less conservative. It’s another to look at the modern left and say, Yeah, I’ll vote for those guys.
Polls or no polls (and they are tightening), we continue to believe that America will give Trump four more years. If it weren’t for the coronavirus and the accompanying economic downturn, we don’t even think it would have been close. But as the COVID numbers trend downwards, the vaccine makes progress, and race riots show us just how radical the Democratic Party has become, we’re confident that voters will make the right choice.
