GOP Expands 'Young Guns' House List

Wednesday, 15 Sep 2010 11:35 PM

Responding to the results of Tuesday’s primaries, The National Republican Congressional Committee is expanding the list of its “Young Gun” recruits – the most promising of a crop of first-time candidates in solid House races around the country.The GOP sets a series of benchmarks for the Young Guns that add up to an assessment that they’ve got a very good chance of winning their midterm race, according to Congressional Quarterly.

The total number of Young Guns is now 75, reflecting what many believe could be a banner year for the GOP with a takeover of the House and possibly the Senate.

The benchmarks set by the committee include developing grass-roots support, fundraising and creating a media plan.

Charlie Bass in New Hampshire's 2nd district.
