Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) predicted that 2024 hopeful Donald Trump will see more “success” among female voters than President Joe Biden.

Stefanik made the prediction after her CPAC speech on Friday, where she sat down with Newsmax to discuss Trump’s 2024 election strategies. When asked about how Trump can appeal to female voters, Stefanik pointed to general tactics and avoided any discussion on more hot-button topics like abortion.

“Well, every issue is a woman’s issue. I’ve always said this whether it’s the crime crisis, the border crisis, whether we see the painful Biden economics. And a lot of times, it’s the moms who are balancing the budget, who are going to the grocery store. They see that increase in prices; they know it’s a result of Joe Biden’s failure,” Stefanik said. “So I think the more the president contrasts, which he does very well, President Trump contrasts his success — whether it’s economic success, national security success, border security success — with Joe Biden‘s abject failure, he’s going to continue to win.”

“What I think is also important to note is Joe Biden‘s numbers plummet while President Trump‘s numbers have never been in a stronger position in key swing states going into 2024,” Stefanik said.

Stefanik stunned in a flattering pink dress during CPAC, complete with a seemingly fresh set of highlights in her hair, as she spoke to the crowd in Washington, D.C.

The New York representative is considered to be on Trump’s short list for vice president. At CPAC, attendees participated in a rare vice presidential straw poll that included 17 possibilities. Gov. Kristi Noem (R-SD) and former GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy were tied for attendees’ top choice as Trump’s running mate. Stefanik and Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) tied for fourth place behind former Democratic Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, who left the party last year.
