NRCC Acknowledges Karen Harrington As Being 'On the Radar'

Karen Harrington has received the 'On the Radar' status by the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) in their 'Young Guns' candidate program. Karen is honored to be acknowledge by the NRCC, and looks forward to continuing to work closely with the Republican leadership, as well as with other members of the Republican majority in Congress.

"Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz continues to misinform Americans with her extremist rhetoric, as she runs cover for President Obama's failed policies. I look forward to continuing to hold her, her President, their reckless political agenda accountable, as well as continue to demand that she release her tax returns." -Karen Harrington

Karen Harrington Advances to ‘On the Radar’
Florida Republican Candidate Takes Second Step to Achieving ‘Young Gun’ Status

Washington --- The National Republican Congressional Committee today announced Karen Harrington as an ‘On the Radar’ candidate, the important second step in the ‘Young Guns’ program. Founded during the 2007-2008 election cycle by Reps. Eric Cantor (R-VA), Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Paul Ryan (R-WI), the ‘Young Guns’ program is a Member-driven effort that is the primary method for recruiting strong candidates for both open-seat and challenger races. Harrington is running for Florida’s 23rd Congressional District.

“We are looking forward to working with Karen Harrington, who has already proven herself by meeting rigorous benchmarks in the ‘Young Guns’ program that will position her campaign for victory,” said NRCC Chairman Pete Sessions (R-TX). “Karen Harrington’s dedication and experience enables her to advocate effectively for pro-growth policies and fight the failed status quo in Washington. This will stand in stark contrast to the Obama-Pelosi record of spending, borrowing and taxing that Florida families and small businesses know has failed.”

The ‘Young Guns’ program encourages candidates who have proven their ability to meet crucial campaign benchmarks to develop their campaigns further in order to achieve victory on Election Day. In achieving ‘On the Radar’ status, Karen Harrington has met organizational and fundraising benchmarks and has already begun to establish herself as a strong contender. Harrington will now work toward even higher goals that will help her advance in the ‘Young Guns’ program and build an effective, winning campaign.

Karen Harrington’s story is centered around the pursuit of the American Dream. Her family moved to South Florida in 1969 where they took a chance and opened a restaurant. Today, after 30 years, Karen Harrington and her sister manage all three restaurants of her family’s expanding restaurant business in the South Florida area. Harrington is not only a successful entrepreneur, she is also a dedicated public servant. Over the past four decades, Harrington has sponsored hundreds of youth and adult programs including athletic leagues and cancer awareness foundations.
