The National Republican Congressional Committee has elevated Dr. Mike Fallon’s campaign against six-time incumbent Democratic Rep. Diana DeGette in Colorado’s First Congressional District to “On the Radar”–recognizing the campaign’s accomplishments and the increased competitiveness of many seats previously thought unwinnable before this cycle:
The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) today announced its newest round of ‘On the Radar’ and ‘Contender’ candidates. By reaching the first and second step of the three-step ‘Young Guns’ program, these Republican candidates have reached the fundamental benchmarks to place them on the road to victory. Now, these 23 candidates are ready to take on the Democrat establishment and return fiscal sanity to Washington.
“These candidates have worked hard to meet the benchmarks that have been laid out before them and are determined to hold Washington Democrats accountable this November,” said NRCC Chairman Pete Sessions (R-TX). “Middle-class families are tired of watching the Democrat majority spend this country deeper into recession while they have been forced to tighten their belts. With Americans desperate for change, these 23 candidates are determined to reign in reckless spending, cut taxes and return the economy back to a state of vitality.”
