Steel’s Strong Campaign draws attention by House Republicans’ Official Campaign Arm
Today, the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), the official campaign arm of House Republicans, announced that County Supervisor Michelle Steel has been named an “On the Radar” candidate in their Young Guns recruitment program.
The NRCC Young Guns program, co-founded by Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy, is a recruitment, fundraising, and training program for viable Republican candidates in competitive seats. “On the Radar” is the first of three levels of the Young Guns program and is reserved for candidates who are running in targeted congressional seats that have met key fundraising, communications, and organizational requirements.
“I’m excited to be named an “On the Radar” candidate because it reinforces that we’re running a strong campaign with an impactful message, a lot of grassroots support, and have the organization to win and drive much needed change Orange County residents want,” said Michelle Steel, Vice-Chair of the County Board of Supervisors.
“There has been an outpouring of local support for Michelle Steel because she’s tough, accomplished, and trusted, and the NRCC has taken notice,” added Sam Oh, general consultant.
Major California Republican organizations have coalesced behind Michelle Steel’s candidacy. She has already received the early endorsements of the California Republican Party, the Republican Party of Orange County, and the Lincoln Club of Orange County.
Steel represents the county’s 2nd supervisorial district which overlaps 66% of California’s 48th congressional district which encompasses all or portions of Aliso Viejo, Costa Mesa, Fountain Valley, Garden Grove, Huntington Beach, Laguna Beach, Laguna Niguel, Newport Beach, Santa Ana, Seal Beach, and Westminster.
