    New York Republican Representative Elise Stefanik, who is poised to replace Wyoming’s Liz Cheney as chair of the House Republican conference, has risen in the party’s ranks largely through her recent loyalty to former President Donald Trump.

    First elected as a moderate from upstate New York in 2014, Stefanik opposed Trump’s signature tax cut law. But she became one of Trump’s most vocal defenders when Democrats impeached him in 2019 over his allegations he pressured Ukraine to smear his then-likely rival President Joe Biden. Trump at the time labeled her a “new Republican Star.”

    Now, Trump is backing her to replace Cheney, who faces being removed from party leadership over her continued criticism of the former president.

    “Elise Stefanik is a far superior choice, and she has my COMPLETE and TOTAL endorsement for GOP Conference Chair. Elise is a tough and smart communicator!,” Trump wrote in a statement issued Wednesday.

    Stefanik, 36, gained national prominence cross-examining impeachment investigation witnesses before the House Intelligence Committee, and in January 2020 was named a member of Trump’s defense team in his first Senate impeachment trial.
