PRAIRIE DU CHIEN, WI – Derrick Van Orden is among the first wave of ‘Young Guns’ announced by Leader Kevin McCarthy and the NRCC as top candidates in the 2022 midterms. Derrick has been the top fundraising Republican contender in both quarters since his announcement in August and has been campaigning across the district speaking with Wisconsinites about the out of control inflation across the country, fixing our global standing after Joe Biden’s failed Afghanistan withdrawal, and the self-inflicted illegal immigration crisis at the border.

House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy unveiled the first set of ‘Young Guns’ today, highlighting candidates who have proven to be true competitors across the country. The candidates included in the ‘Young Guns’ program are the top competitors in the country, and Wisconsin’s 3rd District is already poised to be one of the most important races in 2022.

The list released by the longtime congressman from California, which was shared first with Fox News on Monday, includes eight candidates running in some of the nation’s most competitive congressional districts in next year’s elections.

On the list are former Rep. Bruce Poliquin of Maine (ME-02), Derrick Van Orden of Wisconsin (WI-03), Esther Joy King of Illinois (IL-17), Tom Kean Jr. of New Jersey (NJ-07), Amanda Adkins of Kansas (KS-03), Ryan Zinke of Montana (MT-01/02), and from two from Texas – Monica De La Cruz Hernandez (TX-15) and Wesley Hunt (TX-38).

…”When we started this program 14 years ago, our goal was to ensure we had the most credentialed candidates in the toughest races across the country. This standard has been met as the Young Guns program has helped elect over 150 members — and with our current class we expect to significantly add to this total when we take back the House next November,” McCarthy told Fox News.

“I’m confident these eight individuals represent the future of the Republican Party and when elected will hit the ground running to get America back on track,” he added.
