  • Vice President Mike Pence presided over Congress as it certified the election on January 6, 2021.
  • Republican Representative Elise Stefanik stated that if in his position, she would have taken different actions.
  • This time around, Stefanik is reportedly among the candidates on Trump’s limited list of potential running companions.

Rep. Elise Stefanik, one of the primary candidates to become running companion to President Donald Trump, stated that she “would not have done” what former Vice President Mike Pence did on January 6, 2021, to certify the presidential election.
Thursday night, during an interview with CNN’s Kaitlan Collins, Stefanik was asked what she would have done if she had been vice president and in charge of guiding Congress’ certification of each state’s vote on the day of the Capitol rioting.
She responded, “I would not have done what Mike Pence did.” “I don’t think that was the right approach.”
After all of Congress was forced to evacuate the Capitol on January 6, 2021, pro-Trump rioters invaded the building and raised numerous objections, Pence led the group of legislators who formally certified the election in support of Democratic incumbent President Joe Biden.
While Stefanik refrained from explicitly delineating her alternative course of action on that fateful day, she altered the inquiry when queried whether she would “be okay” with Vice President Kamala Harris declining state ballots should Trump be re-elected.
Representative Stefanik: Pence’s actions were not what I would have undertaken.
Her remarks on Thursday were made slightly more than a month after she rejected certifying the presidential elections of 2024, stating only “if they’re constitutional.”
“What we saw in 2020 was unconstitutional circumventing of the Constitution, not going through state legislators when it comes to changing election law.”
While Trump has not yet declared his prospective running companion for the presidency, the Associated Press reported in late January that he is contemplating the nomination of a female candidate. According to reports, Stefanik is the highest-ranking woman and Republican congressional leader on his short list.
