Marc Molinaro Named “On the Radar” Candidate by National Republican Campaign Committee

Molinaro named one of 32 candidates who made the first round of Young Guns Program


Today, candidate for New York’s 19th Congressional district Marc Molinaro was named “On the Radar” by the National Republican Campaign Committee (NRCC) for their Young Guns program.


The program, led in conjunction with Leader McCarthy, helps equip Republican candidates across the country with the tools they need to run winning campaigns.


Connor Smith, spokesman for the Molinaro campaign, commented, “Coming off of raising over $350,000 in just 10 days to launch his campaign, Marc Molinaro continued that progress to vault himself into the top tier of Republican Congressional candidates in the country. It’s encouraging to see this progress recognized by Leader Kevin McCarthy and the NRCC. Marc looks forward to continuing to spread his message to the people of New York about his solutions to the issues they are facing today.”


The Young Guns program is divided into three 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.
