May 14, 2021
Press Release
"While I was unable to attend this morning’s vote due to a death in the family, I am very pleased that my friend, Elise Stefanik of New York, has been selected as GOP Conference Chair. I have worked with Elise closely over the years on issues related to career & technical education, family violence prevention, the opioid crisis, and to ensure that we support family dairy farms. She has the drive, keen leadership abilities, and most importantly, an open ear for all members of our conference. These will be invaluable traits as we continue to push back against the radical leftist agenda in Washington."
