NRCC says Catalina Lauf “on the radar” for “Young Guns” status

Monday, Feb 28, 2022 - Posted by Rich Miller

* NRCC

The National Republican Congressional Committee today announced an additional slate of 21 “On the Radar” candidates as part of the Youngs Guns program. The program, spearheaded by Leader McCarthy, helps equip Republican candidates across the country with the tools they need to run winning campaigns.

“Republicans are completely united in our goal of taking back the House and firing Nancy Pelosi,” said Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy. “I look forward to working with these candidates to promote our policies to get inflation under control, secure our border, and stop the violent crime wave sweeping our nation.”

The Young Guns program is divided into three levels containing benchmarks that a candidate must achieve to advance in the program. Candidates who achieve full Young Guns status have successfully collaborated with the NRCC and completed the requirements that establish a path to victory on Election Day. […]

The list of newly added “On the Radar” candidates is as follows: […]

(IL-11) Catalina Lauf

Lauf originally filed to run against Adam Kinzinger and is now running in a crowded primary race for the opportunity to compete against Democratic incumbent Bill Foster.

* From a recent Daily Herald story

Of the more than 20 Republicans running for Congress in the North, Northwest and West suburbs, just four said they agree with the Republican National Committee’s description of last year’s deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol as “ordinary citizens engaged in legitimate political discourse.” […]

Eleventh District candidate Catalina Lauf of Woodstock said she agreed with the RNC’s statement. There are “widespread, absurd mischaracterizations of that day,” said Lauf, who is among five Republicans vying to face Democratic incumbent Bill Foster of Naperville.

Trump lost the new 11th District by 16 points.

    How utterly unsurprising. Lauf is an empty Trumpist quote machine. Nothing more.

    “Young GUNS”

    =Lauf is an empty Trumpist quote machine=

    She is also a charismatic figure, Bill Foster
    is a very smart and very underwhelming one.

    All it takes to be a “Young Gun” is the ability to raise six figures in a filing quarter. Don’t read too much into it.

    I do believe Oberweise was a young gun. I thought that was funny. But looking at the average age of both leaderships and our President perhaps he was. I guess age like beauty is in eye of the beholder

    Lauf is the younger, more naive version of Mary Miller, and grifters are using her as an ATM funneling machine.

    Lauf is desperate to be relevant, not inclined to be a servant of the people, and quite the propagandist.

    Thing is, if Foster gets Lauf in the draw, can Foster in a shorter window educate enough voters to Lauf?

    ===charismatic figure===

    So are televangelists…


  8. - Huh? - Monday, Feb 28, 22 @ 5:57 pm:

    “Young Guns”

    Must be shooting blanks.
