Elise Stefanik Raises $500k in Under Two Hours: NeverTrumper George Conway Hardest Hit
Stefanik: “THANK YOU to all of my supporters — we raised $500K in UNDER 2 HOURS last night! I am deeply honored and overwhelmed by all of your support and will continue standing up for FACTS and #NY21”
Last weekend, Kellyanne Conway’s NeverTrump husband smeared Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) by calling her “lying trash” and sharing in since-deleted tweets a clearly photo-shopped image of her.
He also called for his NeverTrump followers to contribute to her Democrat opponent’s campaign. As I noted at the time, this is a questionable request by a self-proclaimed Republican.
Clearly, Stefanik has hit a nerve. Conway himself seems to have donated the maximum amount allowable by law . . . to a Democrat.
A Democrat, by the way, who supports DACA, anti-Second Amendment gun control, “green energy” and planning for “future repercussions from climate change,” and social justice, including the claim that universal healthcare and “quality education” are rights. Exactly, in other words, the sort of politician you would expect a NeverTrump Republican to enthusiastically support.
Conway even bragged about donating the maximum allowed by law to Stefanik’s Democrat challenger.
I just gave the legal maximum. If you believe in truth in politics and in the rule of law, you should give what you can as well. https://t.co/KztHswmYoT pic.twitter.com/ukfNr66ipP

Stefanik immediately countered with calls to help her own campaign in light of the influx of cash going to her opponent.
It's VERY Clear. Far-left Dems & Never Trumpers CANNOT handle the Truth. That's why they are launching disgusting smears & doctoring photos of me in a sick attempt to intimidate me. Thx for proving that our side is WINNING. Donate NOW to help me fight backhttps://t.co/MlLBNmCor4

Ultimately, she set up a site devoted to countering Rep. Adam Schiff‘s (D-CA) clown show impeachment debacle.
Within two hours, the site had garnered $500k in donations to help Stefanik’s reelection bid next year.
THANK YOU to all of my supporters — we raised $500K in UNDER 2 HOURS last night! I am deeply honored and overwhelmed by all of your support and will continue standing up for FACTS and #NY21. Join me in this fight and donate today! https://t.co/tVW9NvZSMx

Professor Jacobson astutely addresses George Conway:

Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
We’re in a serious fight for our Constitutional Republic. After the “trash” comment, I went to the website she named and donated to her campaign. It is unbelievable how far the left has gone in their quest for power. They must be defeated.
I like Elise Stefanik’s spunk.
Proud to be one of those donors. There is more where that came from if George Conway opens his stupid pie hole again.
I donated twice.
Help! Where does “Professor Jacobson astutely addresses George Conway“? This text is followed by a : but no explanation or link.
I see a copy of a tweet: She couldn’t have done it without you, @gtconway3d
Hi Sally MJ, that text is followed by an embedded tweet from Professor Jacobson that reads as follows: “She couldn’t have done it without you @gtconway3d”

Hmmm.she seems to have a bit of a past when it comes to voting against Trump though.
Let’s hope these last couple weeks has shown her the light??
Trump on Fox and Friends yesterday gushed about Stefanik and her star quality.. If he’s Ok with her then I am. She’s better than the alternative.
Some have criticized Elise for being a moderate Republican (which she is). But that reflects her district and she proved when push comes to shove she can fight back (and fight back well).
Anyone who George Conway hates is ok by me.
It’s funny, but no one I talk with refers to George Conway by name. He is referred to as Kellyanne Conway’s husband. I suspect he has a massive inferiority complex when it comes to women. He lives every day in the shade of Kellyanne, President Trump and now Ms Stefanik. Silly little pathetic man!
I think you hit the nail on the head!
Not only a contributor, but I live in her district and voted for her all three times. I look forward to helping out in her 2020 campaign next summer.
Conway is just another example of what the #neverTrump cult is really rooted in.
Sure, they hate Trump. But they have an absolutely insane, burning hatred for those who voted for or defends him.
It drives them completely over the edge of sanity.
As we’ve seen first hand, right here at LI
Isn’t George supposed to be a conservative? Lol
Stefanic is a bit liberal for my taste, but in the era of Ron Paul Moneybombs, you might wish to take care who you attack.
George Conway is butt-hurt. Looks like three dozen Dunkin’ Donuts fo lunch tomorrow.
