Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) was the youngest woman ever elected to Congress in 2014–Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) broke that record in 2018–and Stefanik has made it her mission to increase the number of GOP women in the House.
Now the House Republican Conference chair, Stefanik has accomplished her goal by adding 18 GOP women to the 13 who were in office when she came into the House.
This year, 23 more women will be GOP candidates, and Stefanik is excited about Republicans’ prospects in the midterms.
“I think we’re in a very strong position to not only take back Congress, but to win a historic majority,” Stefanik told Fox News Digital. “We do not measure the drapes. And we don’t take anything for granted. We’re going to work to earn this majority.”
If Republicans retake the majority in the House as expected, Stefanik may become the House Whip, giving her even more power to help GOP women get elected.
