Tonia Khouri (IL-11) Achieves ‘Young Gun’ Status in NRCC’s Recruitment Program
Young Guns reach the program’s final level by “establishing a clear path to victory,” the NRCC said in a press release yesterday.
(AURORA, IL) – Tonia Khouri (IL-11) was named one of 11 candidates nationally to achieve Young Gun status in a press release by the National Republican Congressional Committee yesterday. This marks a third and final stage in the Committee’s Young Guns program, which aims to support challenger candidates in races nationwide.
“To reach the Young Guns stage of our committee’s recruitment program, candidates must meet our high standards of achievement to ensure a path to victory on Election Day,” said NRCC Chairman Greg Walden. “As a committee, we are working to help elect Republicans to maintain our record-breaking majority in the House of Representatives and further put into action our ideas that will build a more confident America. As the November elections approach, I am confident these candidates will continue to work hard for their communities and put America on a better path.”
Since her primary victory in March, Khouri has wasted no time in hitting her opponent, Congressman Bill Foster, on his failures while in office. Most recently, Khouri publicly pointed out Foster’s preference for divisive, partisan politics and his irresponsible votes on foreign policy action. Khouri has also begun a ‘Talk with Tonia’ district tour, which will give her the opportunity to hear directly from constituents all across the district.
“I am so glad people are recognizing how much we have accomplished on the campaign and how vulnerable Bill Foster is in what should be a safe seat for an incumbent,” said Khouri. “We are working tirelessly to spread the message that Bill Foster has failed us in Congress, and I am confident that district residents will see I’m the right person to represent them in Washington.”
