Rising GOP star will target Biden’s ’47-year

failed record’ in major convention speech

U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik of New York, considered by many to be a rising star in the Republican Party, will have a prime-time speaking spot next week when the GOP holds its presidential nominating convention, according to reports.

Stefanik, 36, represents the state’s 21st Congressional District, far north of New York City — a region known as the “North Country.”

She said she will use her air time to attack what she described as Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s “47-year failed record of far-left policies.”

Her remarks also will include a defense of what she called President Trump’s “record of results,” the Albany Times Union reported.

Stefanik announced her selection to speak at the convention in a Twitter message on Friday.

“Honored to be invited to speak by @realDonaldTrump at #RNCConvention #RNC2020 next week,” she wrote.

“It’s a great opportunity for the North Country to have a national audience,” she added, using a quote she gave to the Daily Gazette of Schenectady, N.Y.
