Join Just the News publisher and investigative reporter John Solomon in his exclusive interview with House Republican Conference Chairwoman Elise Stefanik about her efforts to help Republicans win control next year of the lower chamber, and hear from the eight female candidates whom she's backing in that effort.

Stefanik, a New York Republican and the House's No. 3 Republican, is using the might behind her influential Elevate PAC, whose overarching mission is to get more Republican women elected to Congress.    

Eleven out of the 15 seats the GOP flipped in the 2020 election cycle were won by female Republican candidates endorsed by the political action committee. 

Stefanik, who was the National Republican Congressional Committee's first female recruitment chairperson, calls the eight women being endorsed in 2022 by the PAC "majority makers."

The PAC since its start in 2018 has raised and donated over $3 million for GOP female candidates. 

The eight endorsed candidates this cycle include military veterans, small-business owners and mothers. 

They are: 

  • Amanda Adkins (Kansas - 03)
  • April Becker (Nevada - 03)
  • Monica De La Cruz (Texas -15)
  • Jen Kiggans (Virginia - 02)
  • Esther Joy King (Illinois - 17)
  • Jeanine Lawson (Virginia - 10)
  • Karoline Leavitt (New Hampshire - 01)
  • Lisa Scheller (Pennsylvania - 07)
