The National Republican Congressional Committee announced on Wednesday that 32 candidates qualified for the first tier of its “Young Guns” program, putting them “on the radar” in its program that provides organizational and fundraising help to its candidates.
“With working families still struggling in this weak economy and our national security under increasing threats, we must elect more Republicans to Congress who will work to strengthen our nation,” NRCC Chairman Greg Walden said in a news release. “I am confident that these candidates will continue to work hard for their communities and build strong campaigns as we head into the election year.”
