The third of three levels in the Young Guns program, “Young Gun” status highlights those candidates in the most competitive districts who have the organization and plan in place to establish a path to victory.

“I am proud to have my campaign’s hard work recognized with our elevation to “Young Gun” status,” said Young. “Because of the hard work of our supporters, volunteers, and donors, we are on the path to victory in November and returning the voice of Iowa’s Third District to Congress.”
