Here’s a quick update on the positive results our hardworking Congresswoman Elise Stefanik is achieving for the North Country this year.

U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., is the chairwoman of the House Armed Services Emerging Threats and Capabilities Subcommittee, which has jurisdiction over Pentagon cyber operations, counter-terrorism, U.S. Special Operations Command and countering weapons of mass destruction.

Ms. Stefanik has set a good example on this issue. As she said in her statement, she obtained a health insurance policy through the exchange system — despite consistently opposing the ACA. And she declined a congressional subsidy for her insurance, preferring to pay for this coverage herself.

Elise for Congress today unveiled a new campaign ad highlighting Elise Stefanik's bipartisan record on fighting for our agricultural community, including her fight for rural broadband, and for protecting farmers from onerous EPA regulations. From "cows to crops" Elise says in the ad, "agriculture drives our economy."

Less than two years ago we elected Elise Stefanik as our congresswoman and made her the youngest woman ever elected to Congress. Even though she is less than 1/4 of 1 percent of the House of Representatives and a freshman, she was able to obtain seats on the important Armed Services and Education and Workforce committees.

Elise for Congress today released a new TV ad highlighting her strong, bipartisan record keeping her campaign promises to North Country voters to protect Medicare and Social Security, on transparency and government accountability.

I’ve never met anyone more qualified and better prepared to represent us in Congress than Elise Stefanik. We can be proud of electing the youngest woman ever elected to Congress, but more important is that Elise is doing an outstanding job in her first term. In my opinion, she has earned a second term the old fashioned way — through hard work.
