Steven Ernst “Steve” Stivers (born March 26, 1965 in Ripley, Ohio) is a former Ohio State Senator and entrenched RINO who is the incumbent U.S. representative from Ohio's 15th congressional district. As shown below, he is a globalist establishmentarian who has sided against President Trump and conservatives.

U.S. House of Representatives


Stivers had been noted in 2013 as a "close Boehner ally" who floated potential tax hikes.[2]

Stivers was elected in mid-November 2016 the chair of the National Republican Congressional Committee to succeed Moderate Republican Greg Walden.[3]

In mid-July 2017, Stivers joined 26 other Moderate Republicans/RINOs in siding with all House Democrats against a bill that would require the U.S. military to study links between Islamic doctrine and terrorism.[4] The legislation narrowly failed to pass.

Amidst flimsy, politically motivated accusations hurled against Roy Moore, Stivers asked Moore to return campaign donations he gave and further called for him to drop out of the Alabama special election.[5][6]

During the 2018 Midterms, Stivers as chair of the NRCC urged urged Trump to end strict border policies that have ensured greater security.[7] An adamant globalist, he later in August 2018 called for bringing more foreign students into the U.S. to take American jobs, adding on: "I don’t want to cut legal immigration."[8]

Stivers joined liberals and politically correct Republicans in condemning Trump in mid-2019 over remarks toward the Squad,[9]

In mid-August 2019, Stivers along several Moderate Republicans/RINO Backers offered to support Steve King's primary challenger Randy Feenstra,[10] an Iowa state senator who ran as a strong conservative and later proved to be an establishmentarian.[11]

In June 2020, Rep. Stivers and twenty other Moderate Republicans urged President Trump to increase H-1B amidst the coronavirus pandemic that left millions of Americans unemployed.[12]

Rep. Stivers voted in late July along with 71 moderate and conservative Republicans along with all Democrats to remove Civil War-era statues.[13] Unsurprisingly, he also later joined 13 House moderate Republicans voting for a bill to condemn the use of the term "Chinese virus" as being racist.[14]

Stivers said in early January 2021 that he would not oppose measures supported by Democrats to attempt removing President Trump from office via the 25th Amendment.[15]
