The National Republican Congressional Committee announced Wednesday that Justin Fareed has officially achieved “Young Gun”

status, the final level of the NRCC’s recruitment program.

In order to be elevated, Mr. Fareed had to meet a set of high standards and prove that he has a viable path to victory in November, according to the NRCC.

“I’m pleased that the NRCC is supporting someone who will bring the next generation of leadership and 21st century solutions to Congress, so that we can present a better way forward for all Americans,” Mr. Fareed said in a statement. “Voters are tired of status quo career politicians looking for a pay raise, and our campaign will continue to offer true representation for the future of the Central Coast.

Mr. Fareed will square off with Democrat Salud Carbajal, Santa Barbara County 1st District supervisor, in November to succeed Rep. Lois Capps, D-Santa Barbara, who is retiring.
