Elise Stefanik Floated As Potential Trump VP Pick
There's a name out there that had pretty much never been mentioned before in the context of vice-presidential picks, and all of a sudden, it seems to be among a group of favorites to be on Trump's ticket.
That name is Elise Stefanik.
One rather back-alley website, dailykos.com, has offered a dubious suspicion as to why Stefanik is now a favorite to become Donald Trump's running mate.
The folks there are saying that Rep. Stefanik (R-NY) "won't commit to certifying the 2024 election results."
So, the logic is that Trump is going to put Stefanik on the ticket, and she is going to refuse to certify a loss for their team if Biden wins.
I personally think that Stefanik might be a decent pick for vice president, but not for the reasons this liberal publication suggests.
Stefanik is a Republican in New York. That means she is a Republican in the toughest state in which the GOP operates. If she can stand up for Republicans in New York, then that is a good sign that she could stand up for Republicans in D.C. as well.
What dailykos.com said is that Stefanik refused to certify the 2024 election, but that was a lie.
Stefanik said that she would certify the election with no issues and regardless of results IF IT WAS A LEGAL ELECTION.
All she refused to do was certify the results of an election in which somebody had blatantly cheated.
Personally, that is EXACTLY what I would want the politicians representing me to say.
That is why I could see Stefanik being Trump's vice president, NOT because she would refuse to certify a Trump loss, as dailykos.com suggested.
Trump has still yet to announce his pick for VP, but what would you think if it ends up being Stefanik?
