Elise recklessly throws red meat to the MAGA base, consequences be damned.   John, In case you missed it, Elise Stefanik did a lot of bad stuff this past week. FIRST: Elise Stefanik wrote a xenophobic, racist tweet calling on the government to halt baby formula shipments for m…

Recap: The Last 96 Hours

Stefanik is one of the most dangerous Republicans in the country.   John, I’m sad and I’m angry. Here’s why: On Thursday, Stefanik said she is “ultra-MAGA” and “proud of it.” On Friday, Stefanik advocated that babies who are in US custody at the border be denied baby formula, effe…

a complete hypocrite

She’s scoring cheap political points at the expense of Upstate New Yorkers in need.   John, Elise Stefanik is claiming to support our veterans while her voting record demonstrates the complete opposite. Democrat Matt Putorti is the candidate to defeat far-right Stefanik. Will you please g…

This has to stop

Let’s take a look at some of Stefanik’s actions in office.   John, Elise Stefanik promises she’s out to “Save America,” but her actions are far from heroic – they’re anti-democratic. In fact, we’re tasked with saving America from Stefanik. We’re relying on your grassroots support to def…
