WASHINGTON, DC — Today, GOP House Conference Chair Elise Stefanik released the following statement on the new 2024 Congressional Map in New York:


“All throughout this redistricting process, Albany Democrats attempted to illegally gerrymander districts with partisan tactics and corrupt back-room deals to silence the will of voters, and yet on behalf of all hardworking New Yorkers who deserve fair and legal districts, New York Republicans have held the line. Overall, we have protected our House Majority. This November, we plan to protect all our GOP-held districts and expand our House Majority right here in New York, and this map allows just that.


This legal and political victory comes bittersweet. I’m deeply disappointed to no longer serve as the Congressional Representative in Rensselaer County and Otsego County, part of Montgomery County, as well as parts of Jefferson County following the 2024 election. I will continue to work my very hardest to deliver results to my constituents. I look forward to representing the hardworking families, small businesses, farmers, veterans, and seniors in Saratoga County again and those in Oneida County.


I am still honored to represent Fort Drum, and as a senior member of the House Armed Services Committee, I will always be the strongest voice for the North Country and Fort Drum’s servicemembers and families, as Fort Drum is the lifeblood of our entire North Country economy and culture. As the North Country deeply understands, Fort Drum’s impact is regional, statewide, national, and international. I look forward to serving as the top voice for Rome Air Force Research Laboratory on the House Armed Services Committee, for whom I have already delivered significant results.”


The new NY-21 district voted for President Trump by 16% in 2020, an increase of over 3% from the prior NY-21, and voted for the GOP gubernatorial candidate in 2022 by 31%. Chairwoman Stefanik has been re-elected by historic margins every single election cycle despite millions of dollars spent against her. House GOP Chairwoman Elise Stefanik is the most senior Congressional Republican from New York in over 200 years.


NY-21 now includes Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Fulton, Hamilton, Herkimer, Lewis, Schoharie, St. Lawrence, Warren, and Washington counties in their entirety, along with parts of Jefferson, Montgomery, Saratoga, and Oneida counties.
