Thanks for this, Mike. I look forward to casting a vote for you.

Then again, searching around a bit on it, she's looking a little flip floppy.

It's been a question Congresswoman Elise Stefanik has been asked numerous times as the race for the Republican presidential nomination continues: Which candidate does she support?

Everytime she's been asked, she's giving basically the same answer, in which she doesn't say.

Maybe we should cut her some slack. I'd have a hard time choosing between those three fine specimens, too. 

But in August of 2014, when Stefanik was in the middle of the race to win her seat, there was another contest going on. That was the Democratic primary for governor of New York between Andrew Cuomo and Zephyr Teachout.

Stefanik's opponent at the time, Democrat Aaron Woolf, gave roughly the same answer Stefanik is giving now. It was the lack of a hard answer that caused Stefanik's campaign press secretary at the time, Charlotte Guyette, to call on Woolf to "spare the voters pathetic sound bites and just let us know who you are supporting."

Then again, maybe not. No slack for you, Elise.
