Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik is turning her considerable fundraising efforts toward the coming runoff for the two U.S. Senate seats in Georgia as the outcome could determine who controls the chamber next year.
"The consequences would be disastrous," Stefanik said in a fundraising appeal. "If we lose the Senate and Joe Biden is sworn in as our nation’s 46th president, there will be NO WAY to stop the Democrats’ most extreme agenda items.
She also raises the prospect of a fellow New Yorker rising to the majority leader: Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer. A 50-50 Senate would give Vice President-elect Kamala Harris the tie breaking vote in the chamber.
"It’s all hands on deck in Georgia, and that’s why I’m writing to you," Stefanik wrote in the email to supporters.
Stefanik has flexed fundraising muscle this year, aiding women running down ballot for the House of Representatives. Her political action committee after Election Day pointed to more than a dozen women who have won their races that she backed.
