NRCC Adds 18 Candidates to Young Guns ‘Vanguard’ Program

July 11, 2018

WASHINGTON – The NRCC today named 18 candidates to its Young Guns ‘Vanguard’ program, an extension of Young Guns that provides a framework to assist candidates running in Republican-leaning open seats. This program also establishes a working relationship between the NRCC, its Vanguard candidates, and their future colleagues in the House Republican Conference.

“Our Vanguard candidates will be instrumental in further expanding our economic comeback under Republican leadership,” said NRCC Chairman Steve Stivers. “Voters in these districts were left behind by Democrats’ failed leadership of the past. Our Vanguards won’t allow these Americans to be forgotten any longer, and I have no doubt these candidates will emerge victorious in November.”
