Frazier Attains ‘Young Gun’ Status

Campaign gaining momentum leading up to Election Day

Aurora, CO – Ryan Frazier, Republican candidate for the 7th Congressional District, today was recognized as a ‘Young Gun’ by the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC). Frazier reached the top level of the three-tier Young Guns program by proving his campaign is in a position to win in November. Candidates selected for the prestigious title of ‘Young Gun’ have proven their ability to build a strong campaign organization and raise the necessary funds to win.
“I appreciate this signature recognition by the NRCC as a Young Gun,” Frazier said. “Our campaign continues to gain momentum as we head into the final stretch of the campaign season.”

Originally founded in the 2007-2008 election cycle by Reps. Eric Cantor (R-VA), Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), and Paul Ryan (R-WI) as a member-driven organization, the Young Guns program has become an official NRCC effort dedicated to electing open-seat and challenger candidates nationwide. Reps. Cantor, McCarthy and Ryan remain actively involved in Young Guns, working together to recruit and prime conservative leaders for victory.

“Ryan Frazier has proven that he’s ready to take on incumbent Ed Perlmutter, an out-of-touch Democrat who has blindly supported his party’s failed agenda of job-killing policies and reckless spending,” said NRCC Chairman Pete Sessions (R-TX). “Ryan’s campaign is a symbol of the growing momentum behind Republican candidates in Colorado and across the country. As Democrats and their party bosses continue to force their big-government, big-spending policies onto the backs of hard-working families, Republicans like Ryan Frazier will continue to present a clear alternative to a Democrat majority that unapologetically spends too much, borrows too much and taxes too much.”

Colorado’s 7th Congressional District has been on the radar screen of national pundits across the country. CNN, Real Clear Politics, and the Cook Report have all upgraded the race in recent weeks, a clear sign of its highly competitive landscape.

“We are working hard to earn the confidence of the people. We have the team, and resources, in place to win,” Frazier concluded. “Our message of fiscal responsibility, and common sense solutions to our nation’s economic crisis, is resonating with voters across the 7th Congressional District.”
