The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) announced today that Reid Ribble (WI-08) has reached ‘Young Gun’ status, the premiere level of its three-tiered Young Guns program. By advancing to the program’s top tier, Ribble has proven his ability to build a winning campaign and achieve substantial fundraising goals.
“Reid Ribble has proven that he’s ready to take on incumbent Steve Kagen, 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). “Reid’s campaign is a symbol of the growing momentum behind Republican candidates in Wisconsin 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 Reid Ribble will continue to present a clear alternative to a Democrat majority that unapologetically spends too much, borrows too much and taxes too much.”
Having owned and operated a small business, lifelong Wisconsin resident Reid Ribble knows all-too-well that the Obama-Kagen agenda is serving as a roadblock to an economic recovery. He is the former president of both the Ribble Group and the National Roofing Contractors Association. Unlike Kagen, Ribble has the real-world experience to get the local economy thriving once again.
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.
Now that Reid Ribble has completed the Young Guns’ benchmarks to place him on the road to victory, he is ready to take on loyal lapdog Democrat Steve Kagen in November. (Source: NRCC)
An important acheivement for Reid Ribble but not surprising to see now that the Republican primary is past. The question is will Reid’s campaign see the boost Sean Duffy‘s did from a campaign donations standpoint after Sean achieved the designation months ago.
