(Arapahoe, Colorado) — Steve House, Republican candidate for Colorado’s sixth Congressional District has reach another significant benchmark in his campaign to return fiscal leadership to Colorado communities and to be an independent voice in U.S. Congress.
Today, the National Republican Congressional Committee has upgraded Steve House and his campaign for U.S. Congress to ‘Contender Status’ within the NRCC’s prestigious ‘Young Gun’s’ rising star’s program.
“These hardworking candidates have proven their ability to run strong, competitive campaign operations,” said House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy. “We’re going to ensure these contenders are victorious in November by forcing their Democratic opponents to own their party’s radical socialist agenda.”
Steve House was elevated to ‘Young Gun’ status in October, the highest ranking which the NRCC bestows to “the most competitive congressional seats in the 2020 election cycle.”
The NRCC’s Young Guns program requires candidates to work towards specific goals and meet benchmarks throughout the election cycle to ensure their campaigns remain competitive, well-funded and communicative within their districts. Contender candidates have completed stringent program metrics and are on the path to developing a mature and competitive campaign operation.
“While this is a tremendous acknowledgement of the momentum and outpouring of support for our campaign, it is also more proof that real people – with growing families, average paying jobs and fears concerning skyrocketing education and healthcare costs – are looking for new leaders who understand their problems and have real solutions that make sense,” said candidate for U.S. Congress Steve House. ”I am honored that so many Republican, Democrat and unaffiliated voters have joined us. I am now even more confident that we will win in November and put the focus back on the needs of Coloradans – and off Washington insider politics.”
In less than four months since Steve House announced his campaign to return effective leadership and result-driven problem solving to the residents of the 6th Congressional District his campaign has raised a total of $500,159.25.
And while Coloradans waited for their freshman Congressman to address their immediate need for affordable healthcare, access to more choice in education at an affordable cost, legal immigration and secure borders and to create business base solutions to protect our environment – The House campaign collected $298,018.69 in the 4th quarter from frustrated and angry voters.
