CA 10 – Ted Howze has been recognized on the exclusive “On the Radar” list of candidates published by the National Republican Congressional Committee’s (NRCC) Young Guns. The Young Guns program identifies the leading candidates in the top-tier races across the nation, and requires that members meet a number of benchmarks to identify the most competitive and viable candidates.
“This is why we are recruiting the best to compete in 2020 and I am proud to welcome each of these candidates to the Young Guns program,” said Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy.
This distinction comes as Ted Howze emerges as the most viable challenger in California’s 10th Congressional District. Ted ended the last quarter with over $674,000 cash on hand and has a growing list of endorsements from local elected officials and opinion leaders, including:
