Ms. Stefanik announced today that her campaign has received the unanimous endorsement of the New York Federation of College Republicans, an organization with more than 1,000 members, according to a news release about the endorsement.

“We’re excited to give our unanimous endorsement to Elise Stefanik in her campaign for the 21st Congressional District. She’s a fresh face and brings new energy to the district. She understands the importance of job creation and small business growth in our district, as many college graduates are concerned about finding jobs after school,” said NYFCR Deputy Chairman Jack Moulton, in the release. “Elise has a longstanding relationship working with and involving College Republicans in her campaign. We’re excited about Elise — she represents a younger generation of leaders who recognize the importance of action and being a part of the solutions to our nation’s problems.”

“The New York Federation of College Republicans endorsement is significant because these leaders are engaged and care deeply about the future of their country. They recognize the decisions made in Washington today will affect them and their future families the most,” Ms. Stefanik said. “The College Republicans share the principals and values that both reflect what’s best for New York State, but also their generation as well.”

Speaking of Democrats, John Sides, writing for The Monkey Cage, a Washington Post blog about political science research, gave Democrats a 1 percent chance of regaining the Republican-controlled House of Representatives.

The forecasting model is based on several factors, including the economy, presidential approval, the partisanship of the district and whether an incumbent is running for reelection.

The forecast could shift as more information becomes available, potentially in the Democrats’s favor, though they would likely remain at a distinct disadvantage, according to Mr. Sides.
