NRCC Announces Brian Maryott is “On the Radar”

Maryott exceeds benchmarks to qualify for national “Young Guns” program

CARLSBAD — The National Republican Congressional Committee has designated Brian Maryott an “On the Radar” candidate in the 2020 Young Guns program. Maryott exceeded significant benchmarks set by the committee in the areas of fundraising, grassroots organizing, and in-district political support. His inclusion in the first round of Young Gun candidates brings national resources and attention to Maryott’s race for Congressional District 49. 

From the NRCC release: 

“It’s clear the 2020 election will be a choice between two futures: a future of more freedom or government control,” said Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy. “The new socialist Democrats are embracing policies that are in direct conflict with the needs and priorities of the American people: more taxes, more spending, more government, and less freedom. Simply put, this is theft.

“In stark contrast, Americans’ priorities are Republican priorities. This is why we are recruiting the best to compete in 2020 and I am proud to welcome each of these candidates to the Young Guns program. I remain focused on ensuring they have the resources they need to win, and I look forward to seeing them on the campaign trail over the next 14 months.”

“More and more people are recognizing the importance of this race and supporting my campaign for Congress. Together, we will push back on the extreme special interests groups and socialist donors attempting to control our district,” said Republican candidate Brian Maryott. “My Democratic opponent, Mike Levin, is a hard-left radical pushing an agenda that’s detrimental to families and businesses. We deserve better. I’m committed to delivering results that truly benefit our residents and our communities.“

Brian Maryott is a Certified Financial Planner who spent most of his career helping families save for a rainy day, send their kids to college, and retire with dignity. As the Mayor of San Juan Capistrano, he has a proven record of reform and a history of working with people from all walks of life to get results.

Maryott is endorsed by over 90 elected officials, organizations and community leaders. 

CA-49 is a swing district with a Cook PVI of R+1 and a R+3 voter registration advantage. To learn more about Maryott and his campaign, please visit
