NRCC Announces 30 Additional “On the Radar” Candidates in Young Guns Program

April 28, 2022

WASHINGTON –  The National Republican Congressional Committee today announced an additional slate of 30 “On the Radar” candidates as part of the Young Guns program. The program, spearheaded by Leader McCarthy, helps equip Republican candidates across the country with the tools they need to run winning campaigns.

“Quality candidates from all across the country are stepping up to help Republicans make history and take back the House,” said Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy. “With their help, we are going to fire Nancy Pelosi and hold the Biden Administration accountable for its record of failure and incompetence.”

The Young Guns program is divided into multiple levels containing benchmarks that a candidate must achieve to advance in the program. Candidates who achieve full Young Guns status have successfully collaborated with the NRCC and completed the requirements that establish a path to victory on Election Day.

In 2020, 25 Young Guns were elected to Congress. Since its inception, the Young Guns program has helped elect over 150 members of Congress.
