– Republicans United Behind Stefanik; Divided Democrats Race to Extreme Liberal Left Before June Primary-

Glens Falls: Elise for Congress today announced that all 12 Republican County Committees in the 21st District have unanimously endorsed Congresswoman Elise Stefanik for re-election, citing her proven commitment to jobs, a strong national defense and government accountability.

“North Country Republicans are united behind Congresswoman Elise Stefanik,” said Shaun Gillilland, Regional Vice Chair of the New York State Republican Party for the North Country. “Elise earned the unanimous endorsement of every Republican County Committee through her tireless work ethic, and her proven record of fighting for jobs, a strong national defense, and government accountability and transparency.”

“While our Party stands united behind Elise Stefanik, Democrats are divided and in dismal disarray. Every day, liberal Democratic candidates run farther and faster to the extreme left, and away from the common-sense values voters deserve and expect. That may be the right way for Democrats to win a primary, but it’s the wrong way to represent the hardworking taxpayers of the 21st District,” he added.

“I am honored to have earned the unanimous endorsement of every Republican County Committee,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “I want to thank each of these committees for their dedication on behalf of our campaign.”

“These endorsements reflect the strong outpouring of grassroots support for our campaign across the 21st District. I will continue working hard to deliver results for our families and small businesses, and to earn every vote in November.”

The County Republican Committees endorsing Congresswoman Stefanik are:

Clinton County
Essex County
Franklin County
Fulton County
Hamilton County
Herkimer County
Jefferson County
Lewis County
Saratoga County
St. Lawrence County
Warren County
Washington County
