MAHWAH, NJ – Frank T. Pallotta, candidate for Congress in New Jersey’s Fifth Congressional District, released the following statement in response to the National Congressional Campaign Committee’s (“NRCC”) Young Guns “On the Radar” announcement: 
 
“We are thrilled to announce that our campaign has been tapped by the NRCC to be a part of its Young Guns “On the Radar” program. 
 
This is a significant step towards defeating Josh Gottheimer and the radical liberal policies he fails to take a stand against. We congratulate our friend Sen. Tom Kean, Jr. on being named, as well!”
 
Candidates who achieve "On the Radar" status have "met the minimum threshold in campaign organization and show potential to achieve greater status in the program as the cycle progresses," according to the committee.
