Elise Stefanik Tag

If you don't live in upstate NY, you may not realize how horrible a Governor Andrew Cuomo is. Upstate, a huge region north and west of New York City, is Republican territory, and has been in revolt against Cuomo's outrageous gun control SAFE Act for years. Almost every upstate county has, in an ultimately futile but symbolic act, rejected the SAFE Act.

What a difference two years makes.  Back in 2017, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) was on the floor of the U.S. Senate reading a 1986 letter from Coretta Scott King opposing the nomination of Jeff Sessions to a federal judgeship. It was one of Warren's contributions to the debate in the Senate over President Trump's nomination of Sen. Sessions for attorney general.

Elise Stefanik is from New York's 21st District. We're not talking Manhattan here, it's the north country, covering the Adirondack Mountains from the Vermont border to the east and the Canadian border to the north and west.

Patti Russo, the woman in charge of the prestigious Women's Campaign School at Yale University, told NBC News that the majority of calls she has received in the last year came from Republic women. Russo explained the school collected "triple the number of applications from Republicans" because these women are "tired of being quiet, and they know they have a lot to give."
