GENEVIEVE COLLINS NAMED IN FIRST ROUND OF NRCC YOUNG GUNS
DALLAS, TX – Today, Dallas businesswoman and 32nd district Republican nominee for Congress Genevieve Collins was named an official ‘Young Gun’ by the National Republican Congressional Committee, one of just seven candidates in the nation to earn the distinction.
'Young Gun' is the highest level of the three-step Young Guns program. Candidates to reach this level have met a series of rigorous goals and are running in the top targeted Congressional races in the country.
This announcement comes on the heels of Genevieve’s outright victory in the five-way Republican primary on March 3rd and a strong first quarter fundraising total of $719,000.
“These candidates are running extraordinarily competitive, top-of-the-line campaign operations,” said House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy of the first slate of candidates. “Their hard work has put the majority well within our reach, and I look forward to welcoming each one of them to Congress come fall.”
“It is my honor to earn this distinction from the National Republican Congressional Committee. Being named as an official ‘Young Gun’ confirms what we’ve known from day one of this campaign – we have the message, the resources, and the grassroots energy to ensure that Colin Allred is a one-term Congressman,” said Collins.
“Even during these trying times, the energy and support we’ve received on the ground have been nothing short of remarkable. The 32nd district is tired of the same old political games that Nancy Pelosi and Colin Allred are playing, with our businesses and livelihoods hanging in the balance. They are ready for an outsider like me, with a career’s worth of creating and delivering results, to go to Washington and get to work for them."
A 7th Generation Texan and 4th Generation Dallasite, Genevieve Collins is a lifelong Republican and graduate of the Cox School of Business at SMU. As Head of Corporate Strategy at Istation, a leading education technology firm Collins was named one of 2018 20 Under 40 in the Dallas area for her work turning around struggling school districts.
