On January 19, 2024, Republican Representative Elise Stefanik spoke at a rally for former President Donald Trump at the Grappone Convention Center in Concord, New Hampshire. As a potential running mate for Trump in the upcoming presidential campaign, her comments during the event have been closely watched.
Recently, Stefanik has expressed her disagreement with Mike Pence’s decision to certify the presidential election on January 6, 2021. According to Stefanik, she would not have followed the same path as Pence had she been in his position. However, she did not elaborate on what specific actions she would have taken instead.
Stefanik also stated that she is reluctant to commit to certifying the 2024 presidential election due to concerns over its constitutionality. As a leading figure in the House Republican Conference and the only woman in GOP congressional leadership, her position makes her an important figure in Trump’s shortlist of potential running mates for the upcoming race.
Overall, Stefanik’s stance on Pence’s certification decision and her hesitancy to commit to certifying future elections has raised questions about her potential as a vice president candidate for Trump.
