The National Republican Congressional Committee today announced its third round of Young Guns — candidates who have reached the highest tier of the committee’s recruitment and candidate support program.

The seven new candidates are:

  • Former state House Majority Leader Adam Hasner, running in Florida’s open 22nd district
  • Attorney Ben Lange, running in Iowa’s 1st district against Rep. Bruce Braley (D)
  • John Deere attorney John Archer, running in Iowa’s 2nd district against Rep. Dave Loebsack (D)
  • State Senate President Kevin Raye, running in Maine’s 2nd district against Rep. Mike Michaud (D)
  • State Public Service Commissioner Kevin Cramer, running in North Dakota’s open at-large seat
  • Businessman Danny Tarkanian, running in Nevada’s open 4th district
  • Former Erie County Executive Chris Collins, running New York’s 27th district against freshman Rep. Kathy Hochul (D)

“The momentum behind these campaigns is proof-positive that Americans are fed up with President Obama’s policies that spend too much, tax too much and borrow too much at the expense of hard-working families,” NRCC Chairman Pete Sessions (Texas) said in a statement.

The NRCC announced the first slate of Young Gun candidates in May and the second slate in June.
