Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik's re-election campaign on Wednesday announced she had raised $1.2 million over the first three months of 2021 and now holds $2.5 million in cash on hand. 

Stefanik's haul is the largest for the first-quarter fundraising period and the biggest cash-on-hand amount for a North Country House campaign. 

At the same time, Stefanik is burnishing her relationships with Republican candidates elsewhere in the country. Her political action committee, E-PAC, has raised nearly $100,000 during the same period and has $311,737. 

Stefanik has risen to national prominence in part due to her ardent support for then-President Donald Trump during his impeachment trials. 

She is now considered a potential candidate for governor in 2022. 

“I am once again humbled by the unprecedented outpouring of financial support for my re-election from tens of thousands of grassroots supporters," Stefanik said. “Energy and momentum are on our side as we continue to build off the historic success of 2020."
