re Elise Stefanik win in NY-21
She is not TeaParty, she is GOP-E. We will likely take that seat back in Nov (if Matt drops out), but this is not a win for the TP.
She wasn’t living in district, not paying taxes in district, moved to her parents’ camp from DC to run. Was put in place by Ryan & NRCC with a lot of $$ to push out an emerging TP candidate.
Rove spent $250K + to squash Doheny. Lot of money spent to make that seat GOP-E
