As Republicans prepare to select a Congressional nominee in the June 24 primary, we all have a stake in the outcome.
Elise Stefanik entered the race when there was no thought of U.S. Rep. Bill Owens retiring.
Ms. Stefanik has relentlessly presented her upbeat and positive call for a new generation of conservative leadership.
Her intellect and grasp of issues is evident to all who have met her.
Elise Stefanik grew up in the context of her family business, but also has valuable Washington experience that will allow her to represent us from day one.
I first met Elise when she visited City Hall last fall to learn more about issues in the Watertown/Fort Drum region. Since then she has shown time and again she has what it takes to be a member of Congress we can be proud of.
