YG (Young Guns) Action Fund, the super PAC allied with House Majority Leader Eric Cantor and Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy, is backing Illinois freshmen Rep. Adam Kinzinger in his GOP primary against 10-term Rep. Don Manzullo. The two incumbents must face each other because of redistricting.

YG Action Fund, run by former top Cantor aide John Murray, is putting $50,000 to work for a radio ad that calls Kinzinger a “conservative rock in the fight against runaway government spending,” according to a script obtained by Politico.

The ad never mentions the 67-year-old Manzullo by name but it includes Kinzinger as part of “the next generation of conservative leaders.”

In a statement given to Politico, the super PAC’s president, John Murray, said: “He’s cut spending, held the line against liberal efforts to raise taxes, and he’s voted to repeal Obamacare. To change Washington and get the country back on track, we need young guns like Adam there to fight.”

Cantor personally endorsed Kinzinger a week ago. “He helped us turn the tide in the House of Representatives and reconnect with our tried and true conservative principles,” the majority leader said in a statement. “Only when he and his fellow Republican freshmen arrived have we been able to change the debate in Washington from how much more are we going to spend to how much are we going to cut.”
