Congresswoman Elise Stefanik Endorses Karoline Leavitt for Congress in New Hampshire's 1st District
Hampton, NH — Today, House Republican Conference Chair Elise Stefanik's EPAC endorsed Karoline Leavitt for Congress in New Hampshire's 1st Congressional District. In 2014, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (NY-21) was the youngest woman ever elected to the House of Representatives. In 2018, Stefanik launched EPAC to recruit top-tier Republican women and guide their campaigns to victory. In 2020, Congresswoman Stefanik and EPAC were credited with spearheading the 'Year of the Republican Women,' increasing the number of GOP women in Congress from 13 to 35.
Congresswoman Elise Stefanik said, “Karoline is a rising star in the Republican Party who will carry the torch of conservative values for generations to come. Karoline was a proven fighter working in my office and I have watched her bring that same energy and passion in her own campaign for Congress. I know Karoline cares deeply about the people in her home state of New Hampshire, and I know she won’t back down in the face of opposition. I am proud to endorse Karoline Leavitt and look forward to seeing her in the halls of congress.”
Karoline Leavitt released the following statement: "I am honored to have the backing of the House Chairwoman of the Republican Party, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik. While working as Elise's Communications Director, she taught me firsthand to always stand up for the best interests of your constituents and to never back down from a fight. Elise is an exceptional role model and a strong ally of my former boss, President Trump, and I look forward to advancing the America First Agenda under her leadership when we take back the House next November!"
Karoline is 1 of only 8 women candidates running across the country that were selected for this round of EPAC endorsements.
