Congresswoman Stefanik has now earned the unanimous endorsement of 17 NY-21 Republican Committees

SARATOGA, NY — Continuing historic Republican support, today Congresswoman Elise Stefanik announced that she has earned the unanimous endorsements of the Otsego County and Rensselaer County Republican Committees. Stefanik has now been endorsed unanimously by seventeen Republican committees in the 21st district, including Saratoga, Franklin, Herkimer, Fulton, Jefferson, Lewis, Clinton, Hamilton, Warren, Oneida, St. Lawrence, Oswego, Essex, Montgomery, Washington, Rensselaer, and Otsego Counties.

State Senator and Otsego County GOP Chair Peter Oberacker said:

“Otsego County Republicans were thrilled to welcome Congresswoman Stefanik to Otsego County last night and unanimously endorse her re-election campaign. Congresswoman Stefanik has a proven record of results in New York, and Otsego families feel grateful that she will soon be our voice in Congress. We look forward to helping Congresswoman Stefanik secure sweeping Republican victories throughout our communities this November.”

Rensselaer County GOP Chair John Rustin said:

“I am honored to announce that Rensselaer County Republicans have unanimously endorsed GOP House Conference Chair Elise Stefanik in her re-election campaign for Congress. We have cheered on Elise’s conservative leadership in New York for years, and we’re counting our blessings that we now have a Republican warrior like Elise fighting for our families. This election season, Rensselaer County Republicans will stand with Congresswoman Stefanik every step of the way to help her take back the House and deliver results for our families.”

The expanded NY-21 district voted for President Trump by 19% in 2020, nearly doubling the margin in the prior NY-21, and voted for the GOP gubernatorial candidate in 2018 by 30%. Congresswoman Stefanik has been re-elected by historic margins every single election cycle despite millions of dollars spent against her. The new seat has been described in multiple media outlets as a “GOP Super Seat”.
