Rep. Elise Stefanik’s campaign has announced that all 12 Republican county committees in the 21st District have unanimously endorsed Stefanik for election to a third term in Congress this November.

“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,” Gillilland said. “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 said.

More than half a dozen Democrats in the 21st Congressional District are lining up to participate in a primary to select one to run against Stefanik. Some third-party candidates are also in the race.

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

Endorsing Stefanik are the Republican Committees from St. Lawrence, Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Fulton, Hamilton, Herkimer, Jefferson, Lewis, Saratoga, Warren and Washington counties.
