Stefanik endorses Farley for Congress

Rep. Elise Stefanik, the New York congresswoman who’s pushing to raise the low number of Republican women in Congress, endorsed Chele Chiavacci Farley this week for next year’s race for New York’s 18th Congressional District seat.

“Chele Farley brings intelligence, energy, and determination to her race for Congress,” Stefanik said in a press release from the Farely campaign. “Her real-world business experience will be an asset in Congress as she fights to protect tax dollars for hardworking families, fully fund our military, take care of our military families, and address the state’s crumbling infrastructure.”

Farley, a private equity executive who lost a race against Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand last year, plans to challenge four-term Democratic Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney in 2020.

Only 13 of the 199 Republicans in the House of Representatives are women, while 89 of 235 House Democrats are women, according to the Eagleton Institute of Politics at Rutgers University.
