HANFORD, CA – The National Republican Congressional Committee today announced David Valadao as an ‘On the Radar’ candidate, the important second step in the ‘Young Guns’ program. Founded by Reps. Eric Cantor (R-VA), Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Paul Ryan (R-WI), the ‘Young Guns’ program is a Member-driven effort that is the primary method for recruiting strong candidates for both open-seat and challenger races. Valadao is running for California’s newly drawn 21st Congressional District.
“We are looking forward to working with David Valadao, who has already proven himself by meeting rigorous benchmarks in the ‘Young Guns’ program that will position his campaign for victory,” said NRCC Chairman Pete Sessions (R-TX). “David Valadao’s dedication and experience enables him to advocate effectively for pro-growth policies and fight the failed status quo in Washington.”
Specifically, the ‘Young Guns’ program encourages candidates who have proven their ability to meet crucial campaign benchmarks to develop their campaigns further in order to achieve victory on Election Day. In achieving ‘On the Radar’ status, David Valadao has met organizational and fundraising benchmarks.
“I am proud to have gained the confidence of the National Republican Congressional Committee, I will now continue to focus on sharing my message of private sector job creation and securing a reliable water supply with my friends and neighbors in the Central Valley,” said David Valadao, “As a farmer and dairyman, I believe I am best suited to represent the newly drawn 21st Congressional district.”
David Valadao is a farmer and dairyman from Hanford, CA. In 2010 he was elected to represent the 30th Assembly District after defeating his Democrat opponent by over 20% in a district that nearly mirrors California’s newly drawn 21st Congressional district.
