GOP Representative Elise Stefanik has stated that she is not committed to certifying the results of the 2024 presidential election. During an interview on NBC News’ “Meet the Press,” Stefanik was questioned by host Kristen Welker about her stance on the upcoming election certification. Stefanik, who did not vote to certify the 2020 election results in Pennsylvania and several other states, cited concerns over what she considered “unconstitutional” changes to election law.
Stefanik’s reluctance to commit to certifying the 2024 results is based on her view that the 2020 election involved unconstitutional actions, specifically changes in election law that bypassed state legislatures. She emphasized that her decision would depend on the constitutional validity of the election process.
Additionally, Stefanik has been vocal in her criticism of attempts to disqualify former President Donald Trump from appearing on ballots in various states. She also echoed Trump’s controversial description of the January 6, 2021, Capitol rioters as “hostages,” showing her ongoing support for the former president. Her comments add to the ongoing debate about election integrity and the role of lawmakers in certifying election results.
