Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) has claimed that she wants to put more Republican women into the U.S. House, and she recently appeared in a photograph with congressional candidate Laura Loomer at a Florida GOP fundraiser that drew negative attention from the fake news media.

Shamefully, Stefanik backed away from Loomer as soon as the controversy struck. Her spokesman made it clear that Stefanik is not endorsing Loomer for Congress.

Loomer’s fundraising prowess has made her a legitimate contender for Florida’s 21st U.S. House seat, despite being de-platformed by Big Tech:
Loomer is raking in money that makes her a legitimate Congressional contender in next year’s election.
Her campaign made the announcement on Tuesday that she had raised over $154,000 in only 60 days of fundraising. She received third quarter donations from 2,314 individuals throughout the country, demonstrating her broad and diverse donor base, with the average donation being $66.
The press release issued by Loomer’s campaign noted that socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has only raised $59,000 in her first two quarters while serving as a Congresswoman. Loomer’s potential opponent in next year’s general election, Democratic incumbent Lois Frankel, raised $107,000 despite being a political veteran.
“Laura is proving that she is a serious candidate and committed to flipping this seat and building the resources necessary to expose just how out of touch with the district Lois Frankel has become. I believe this will be one of the most watched congressional races for 2020 and will be a bellwether for regaining the House,” said Karen Giorno, who served as the Trump presidential campaign’s 2016 Florida state director and now works as chief strategist for the Loomer campaign.
Stefanik has pledged to help women be elected to Congress in the Republican Party, and has even started Elevate PAC in order to accomplish her goal.
“I can’t tell you how many times I am the only woman at a table,” Stefanik told TIME. “I want more to have a seat at the table.”
“I think the Democrats were strategic in putting up district-specific candidates that would resonate in different parts of the country, whether it’s urban areas, whether it’s people that have interesting narratives with a national-security background or interesting perspectives as working mothers,” she added. “We need to recognize we should be doing that as well.”
However, it does not look like her PAC will be helping out Loomer because she is too conservative and outspoken. Stefanik is a moderate who pushes carbon taxes and mass immigration, and she received extensive support from Mitt Romney and Karl Rove to win her House seat.

With Loomer’s initial fundraising numbers being so strong, it does not look like she will need Stefanik’s support to be a formidable Congressional candidate.
PATHETIC: National Guard Booted to Parking Lot After Democrat Congressman Complained They Weren’t Wearing Masks
The Democrat complained about masks.
New reports suggest that a detachment of National Guard personnel present in Washington, DC for Inauguration duties were kicked out of their spartan lodging in the Capitol to a parking lot after a Democrat Congressman complained that one of the guardsmen wasn’t wearing a mask at a Dunkin’ Donuts inside the Capitol.
Breitbart News has learned that Massachusetts Democrat Will Keating reported that he encountered a soldier at the Capitol without a mask. When Keating told the guardsman to wear a mask, the service member told Keating, “I appreciate my freedom.”
This event reportedly led to the entire National Guard detachment being kicked out of their lodging inside a Capitol lobby to an outdoor parking lot, where they were exposed to freezing temperatures.
Keating has declined to comment on the exchange, with reports suggesting he reported the incident to Capitol Police. This led to the Guard being booted outside as a punishment.
“Yesterday dozens of senators and congressmen walked down our lines taking photos, shaking our hands and thanking us for our service. Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage. We feel incredibly betrayed,” one Guard member told Politico about being kicked to the curb.
Establishment Democrats had been eager to use the military service members as political props, even after a fiasco in which they were caught trying to purge conservative-leaning Guard personnel for insufficiently loyalty to the Biden government. Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida and Greg Abbott of Texas recalled the detachments of their state National Guards from DC following the second incident of disrespect to the troops, with the former rejecting the idea of FL Guard members being utilized as Nancy Pelosi’s personal servants.
