Gay Dem Launches Bid To Unseat Cultist Elise Stefanik

Politico reports:

Democrat Matt Putorti is launching a campaign against Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.), aiming to knock out one of the Republican Party’s rising stars and a newly minted member of House leadership. Putorti is a 37-year-old attorney from Upstate New York focused on LGBTQ+ equality, reducing gun violence, and immigration.

“Elise Stefanik is a threat to spaghetti dinner towns,” Putorti said in a campaign launch video, a reference to his hometown of Whitehall. “If we continue to divide people they’re not going to be able to share that meal together.”

Putorti could receive a boost from redistricting. New York is losing a congressional seat this cycle, and Stefanik’s seat could be targeted. Democrats largely control the redistricting process in New York, and Stefanik’s seat isn’t exactly dark red.
