‘Our side is WINNING’: Elise Stefanik lashes out after Dem challenger Tedra Cobb’s fundraising surges

Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) lashed out at critics on Saturday after gaining notoriety for interrupting the House impeachment proceedings.

Saturday morning, prominent Republican attorney George Conway blasted Stefanik as ‘lying trash‘ — and donated $2,800 to Tedra Cobb, Stefanik’s Democratic challenger.

Conway also urged his 765,000 Twitter followers to donate to Cobb, a former state representative.

Cobb announced she had raised over $500,000 — more than $200,000 more than where she was at earlier Saturday.

Stefanik also asked for political contributions — by framing impeachment in entirely partisan terms and posting a picture of her with President Donald Trump.

“It’s VERY Clear. Far-left Dems & Never Trumpers CANNOT handle the Truth,” she wrote, in a manner mimicking the president’s bizarre Twitter syntax.

“That’s why they are launching disgusting smears & doctoring photos of me in a sick attempt to intimidate me. Thx for proving that our side is WINNING,” she added.
