Trump defender Elise Stefanik out-raised Schiff and AOC last quarter

Rep. Elise Stefanik — the upstate lawmaker who became an overnight GOP superstar with her performance in the impeachment inquiry — raised a whopping $3.2 million in campaign contributions over the last quarter of 2019, beating out Democratic Reps. Adam Schiff and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Schiff, the lead House impeachment manager, raked in $2.5 million, while Democratic-Socialist darling Ocasio-Cortez collected $1.9 million in the same period.

Stefanik (R-Schuylerville) shot to stardom in November thanks to her aggressive questioning of witnesses who testified before the House Intelligence Committee about President Trump’s dealings with Ukraine.
