NY Post: ‘Majority makers’: Stefanik backs eight GOP women for Congress in ‘22

This one’s for the girls.

House Republican Caucus chair Elise Stefanik (R-NY) released her first round of 2022 midterm endorsements Wednesday, vowing that GOP women will be “majority makers” next year.

“As small business owners, mothers, veterans, and health care leaders, these women make up the most impressive and diverse group of rising stars we’ve ever seen,” Stefanik told Fox News.

Stefanik backed her former spokeswoman Karoline Leavitt – also a onetime assistant press secretary to former President Donald Trump — to unseat Democrat Chris Pappas in New Hampshire’s 1st congressional district. She also endorsed Afghanistan veteran and lawyer Esther Joy King in the 17th congressional district in Illinois, where the seat is currently held by retiring Democrat Cheri Bustos.

Stefanik, the No. 3 House Republican, also endorsed two Virginia candidates: Jeanine Lawson, running the commonwealth’s 10th district, and Jen Kiggans, who hopes to represent Virginia’s 2nd district.

Next on Stefanik’s list was former Kansas Republican Party chair Amanda Adkins, who is challenging Democrat Sharice Davids in the Sunflower State’s 3rd congressional district.

Stefanik rounded out her endorsements by backing April Becker in Nevada’s 3rd district, Lisa Scheller for Pennsylvania’s 7th district and Monica De La Cruz for Texas’ 15th district.
