VA02 and VA10 GOP Candidates (Jen Kiggans and Jeanine Lawson) Endorsed by Far-Right Rep. Elise Stefanik (R), Who “aided Trump in his efforts to overturn the election results”

Stefanik also has "promoted conspiracy theories about a 'stolen election"


The following endorsements, by Rep. Elise Stefanik (R), really tell us a GREAT deal – nothing good! – about VA02 Republican candidate, State Sen. Jen Kiggans (R) and VA10 Republican candidate, Prince William County Supervisor Jeanine Lawson (R). For some background on Stefanik, see here:

  • “On September 25, 2019, Stefanik announced that she did not support the impeachment of President Trump. During the November 2019 hearings, in which Congress gathered evidence and heard witness testimony in relation to the impeachment inquiry, Stefanik emerged as a key defender of Trump.
  • “After Joe Biden won the 2020 presidential election and Trump refused to concede while making false claims of fraud, Stefanik aided Trump in his efforts to overturn the election results. She also made false claims of fraud, saying among other things that “more than 140,000 votes came from underage, deceased, and otherwise unauthorized voters” in Fulton County, Georgia. She also expressed ‘concerns’ about Dominion Voting Systems, the subject of numerous false right-wing conspiracy theories. In December 2020, Stefanik supported the lawsuit Texas v. Pennsylvania, an attempt to reverse Trump’s loss by petitioning the U.S. Supreme Court to reject certified results in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Georgia. After a mob of pro-Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, Stefanik condemned the violence but rejected the idea that Trump was at fault. She has promoted conspiracy theories about a ‘stolen election’, and just hours after the invasion of the Capitol, she voted against accepting Pennsylvania’s electoral votes in the 2020 election. Later in January, she expressed opposition to impeaching Trump over his alleged role in inciting the storming of the Capitol. She voted against the second impeachment on January 13″
