Raye is one of 21 GOP congressional candidates nationwide being put in that category, the second stage of the NRCC's "Young Guns" program that awards national party money and support for GOP candidates who are judged in a position to succeed.
For Raye, the state Senate president from Perry, to win that money and support, his campaign, which just began last month, will have to meet key benchmarks for fundraising and other goals set by the NRCC.
“We are looking forward to working with Kevin Raye, who has already proven himself by meeting rigorous benchmarks in the ‘Young Guns’ program that will position his campaign for victory,” said NRCC Chairman Pete Sessions, a Republican U.S. House member from Texas, in a statement.Tweet
