House Republican Conference Chair Elise Stefanik has endorsed Ohio congressional candidate Mike Carey ahead of the highly competitive Ohio primaries next month. Carey, who was also endorsed by former President Trump, is facing a crowded primary field of 11 other challengers.
According to Fox News:
“To defeat the socialist Democrat agenda and fire Nancy Pelosi in 2022, we need more proven conservative fighters in the House Republican Conference, which is why I proudly stand with President Trump in endorsing Mike Carey for Congress,” Stefanik, R-N.Y., said.
“I look forward to working closely with Mike, as he will be a strong ally in our fight to keep America safe, prosperous and free.”
Carey, who is running for the Republican nomination in Ohio’s 15th Congressional District, said he was “truly humbled” to receive Stefanik’s endorsement, adding he “appreciate[s] everything she has already done to empower our party.”
“She is a force within the conservative movement and I can’t wait to join her fight to push Nancy Pelosi and the radical Democrats out of power,” Carey said Tuesday.
U.S. Rep Steve Stivers retired from Congress in May but has already endorsed Ohio Rep. Jeff LaRe to succeed him.
