Elise Stefanik Announces Her Future

Top Republican Announces Plans – Big Change!

(RepublicanNews.org) – Representative Elise Stefanik (R-NY) is currently serving as the House Republican Conference’s chairwoman. With midterms on the horizon, observers have speculated that she would be running for the majority whip if the GOP managed to regain an advantage in the lower chamber of Congress. However, the representative recently announced different plans.

Rather than going for the majority whip position, Stefanik is choosing to run once more for her current seat, which she earned after her party ousted Representative Liz Cheney (R-WY) from the chair. The congresswoman noted in a statement that she will be using the next several weeks to focus on earning Republicans a historic victory and gaining the majority in the House. Stefanik also mentioned the support she has garnished from party leaders in her intention to run for the conference chair again.

Representative Ashley Hinson (R-IA), a first-term congresswoman, had pondered the idea of running for the same position but ultimately threw her support behind Stefanik.

Despite her support, Rep. Stefanik still faces some opposition, with colleague Byron Donalds (R-FL) also gunning for the chair. The congresswoman was among the many possible contenders for the House majority whip thanks to her position as the third top Republican in the lower chamber of Congress.
