Washington- The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) has officially announced Tom Ganley (OH-13) as an ‘On the Radar’ candidate, an important first step in its Young Guns program.

“The NRCC is committed to working with Tom Ganley as he continues to meet the rigorous goals of the Young Guns program,” said NRCC Chairman Pete Sessions. “Tom is an accomplished job creator and an independent leader who will fight to put Northeast Ohioans back to work.  I am confident that Republicans will be successful in our effort to defeat Betty Sutton, who is an out-of-touch politician solely focused on her party’s big-government, big-spending agenda that has failed to turn our economy around.”


As a lifelong resident of Ohio and a proven entrepreneur, Ganley knows what it takes to create jobs and build a successful business from the ground up. Ganley, who is now the President of the Ganley Automotive Group, began his career with one dealership in Euclid and now runs the largest automotive group in Ohio.  His local business includes 32 dealerships and more than 1,000 employees. Ganley has served as a leader of his state and region and has been actively involved in various charitable organizations.
