LITCHFIELD, MN – The NRCC today announced that Michelle Fischbach, the Republican candidate for western Minnesota’s 7th District, is “On the Radar” as part of the committee’s 2020 Young Guns program. The program mentors and supports candidates in races across the country and works to provide them with the necessary tools to run successful, winning campaigns against their Democratic opponents. 

This news comes on the heels of an already impressive week of endorsements for Fischbach in the 7th District race, including House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy, Minnesota Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka, Minnesota House Republican Leader Kurt Daudt, and 14 Republican legislators from the 7th District. 

“We’re thrilled to add these compelling, hardworking candidates to our Young Guns program,” said NRCC Chairman Tom Emmer. “While Nancy Pelosi and the socialist Democrats continue to focus on the baseless impeachment of President Trump, we will be working with our candidates to take back the majority in 2020.”   
The NRCC’s Young Guns program requires candidates to work towards specific goals and meet benchmarks throughout the election cycle to ensure their campaigns remain competitive, well-funded and communicative within their districts. 
“I am grateful for the support I have gained so far in my bid for the 7th District, and honored to be named as a member of the NRCC’s Young Guns program. I am in this race to win,” said Fischbach. “While Collin Peterson and House Democrats continue to obsess over the baseless impeachment inquiry to remove President Trump from office, even voting to prioritize impeachment over stopping the crisis at our southern border, House Republicans will be working to retake the majority and get to work passing laws that benefit the American people.” 
Pointing to Fischbach’s entrance into the race, The Cook Political Report and Sabato’s Crystal Ball both changed their ratings for the 7th District race from Leans Democrat to Toss Up.
