WASHINGTON, D.C. (WWNY) – A battle is brewing for some of New York state’s congressional districts next year. The Republican front will be led by north country Congresswoman Elise Stefanik, who has convinced her party in Washington to make a big investment into different campaigns in the state.
Stefanik will find herself once again at the forefront of an attack – one to flip Democratic congressional seats to the Republicans in 2024.
According to Politico, Stefanik (R. – 21st District) has convinced her party to put $100 million into key swing districts to make New York a Republican state, strengthening the party’s control in Washington.
Assistant Professor of Government Patrick Rickert from St. Lawrence University believes the investment is happening because of the success Republicans saw in recent elections.
