Tonia Khouri, Republican Candidate for Congress, 11th District
Statement:  NRCC “On the Radar” Young Gun
“Our campaign is proud to be “On the Radar” as part of the NRCC’s Young Guns Program. It is important that our supporters and donors take credit for the fact that we are the only Illinois Congressional campaign in Illinois to achieve this milestone and be recognized for this program. We could not have met the benchmark criteria without the early support of thousands of people throughout the district,” said Khouri.
“The residents in the 11th District are concerned about jobs, education reform, safe communities, and national and economic security. I will take these local concerns with me to Washington and help our communities from the federal level.  People want real leadership in Washington. It’s time we change who’s in Washington and start getting things done,” Khouri said.

32 Congressional Candidates Announced “On the Radar” as Part of NRCC’s Young Guns Program
“On the Radar” is the First Level of the NRCC’s Young Guns Program
WASHINGTON – The National Republican Congressional Committee announced the first round of “On theRadar” candidates, the first level of the committee’s Young Guns program, ahead of the 2016 elections. This program will help to provide candidates the tools they need to run successful, winning campaigns against their Democratic opponents.
“These 32 candidates all provide a stark contrast to their liberal opponents, whose support of bigger government, more spending and President Obama’s job-destroying agenda have steered our country down a dangerous path,” said NRCC Chairman Greg Walden (R-OR). “With working families still struggling in this weak economy and our national security under increasing threats, we must elect more Republicans to Congress who will work to strengthen our nation. I am confident that these candidates will continue to work hard for their communities and build strong campaigns as we head into the election year.”
The Young Guns program supports and mentors challenger and open-seat candidates in races across the country. Officially an NRCC effort for the past three election cycles, the program requires its candidates to work towards specific goals and meet benchmarks throughout the year to ensure their campaigns remain competitive, well-funded and communicative within their districts. “On the Radar” is the first of three levels in the Young Guns program. In the 2014 election cycle, the program helped to elect 45 new Republican Members to the 114th Congress.
