NRCC Names McCauley to “On the Radar” Program

The National Republican Congressional Committee named Greg McCauley, the Republican nominee in the 6th Congressional district, to its “On the Radar” program two days after the primary.

“Greg has represented his community and fought tirelessly for common-sense reforms that put taxpayers first. He knows how to grow the economy, create jobs, and increase wages, and Greg would be a strong advocate for the 6th District in Congress,” NRCC Chairman Steve Stivers said.  

McCauley is a lawyer and investor from southeast PA.  He originally filed to challenge Republican Congressman Ryan Costello, but Costello announced he would not seek re-election after the filing deadline leaving McCauley as the only Republican on the ballot. 

Being added to the list does not mean the NRCC will be investing in the race, as they do not get involved in open primaries.  

To get onto the list the candidates had to prove their viability by hitting certain marks in fundraising, messaging and communications.

McCauley will face Democrat Chrissy Houlahan, a former AND1 executive, in the general election.

  1. After Costello dropped out McCauley was the only candidate, why not get involved at that point?

  2. congrats Greg for being named as nrcc’s to on the radar program for the 2018’s midterm elections is to get the republicans is to hold to this seat.

  3. The article states that the NRCC added McCauley two days after the primary. Then you say that the NRCC won’t be getting involved because they don’t get involved in open primaries – which doesn’t make sense because the primary is over (as you already mentioned) and PA has a closed primary.

    Come on. Do just a little bit of editing. Don’t just summarize press releases. This website could be really informative and useful, but it gets crappier and crappier.
