Walorski Reaches ‘Contender’ Status with NRCC’s Young Guns Program
(Washington DC) – Today, the National Republican Congressional Committee announced that 2nd District Congressional Candidate Jackie Walorski had reached ‘Contender’ status as part of the Young Guns recruitment program. The program was founded in the 2007-2008 election cycle by Reps. Eric Cantor (R-VA), Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Paul Ryan (R-WI). Young Guns is a member-driven organization that has become an official NRCC program dedicated to electing open-seat and challenger candidates nationwide.
“Jackie has already proven that she will be a formidable candidate by meeting the Young Guns program’s rigorous goals and is well on her way to building a winning campaign that will put this seat in the Republican column,” said NRCC Chairman Pete Sessions (R-TX).
“Jackie is part of a strong and growing pool of candidates who are frustrated with the Democrat majority’s big-government ways and aren’t willing to stand by any longer,” said Sessions. “Her campaign has put Congressional Democrats on notice that Americans are ready to turn the page on the failed experiment known as the Obama-Pelosi agenda.”
While already achieving certain benchmarks to place them on the road to victory, ‘Contender’ candidates now face a new set of rigorous benchmarks that will continue to help them build competitive, effective and winning campaigns.
