Amanda Makki Named by Leader McCarthy to the Young Gun Contenders List

Amanda Makki received yet another major honor this week, being named as a Young Gun Contender by NRCC and House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy.  This further sets her apart as the clear Republican frontrunner and the only candidate capable of unseating Charlie Crist in November.


Makki was previously listed to the “Young Guns On The Radar” program as one of only 43 leading Republican candidates nationwide.  These candidates had to reach certain predetermined goals and benchmarks and remain competitive and well-funded.  Due to the continued success and growing strength of Makki’s grassroot campaign, she was named to the first round of Young Gun Contenders.

“These hardworking candidates have proven their ability to run strong, competitive campaign operations,” said House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy. “We’re going to ensure these contenders are victorious in November by forcing their Democratic opponents to own their party’s radical socialist agenda.”

This is just the newest among more than 10 endorsements for Makki.  She has recently received the support of conservative leaders, including Leader Kevin McCarthy and Congressmen Michael Waltz, John Rutherford, Michael Burgess, and Neal Dunn. Furthermore, conservative and p­ro-business groups, such as the Associated Builders and Contractors Florida Gulf Coast Chapter, FreedomWorks, Republican Main Street Partnership PAC, “Maverick PAC,” ViewPAC, Maggie’s List, Rep Stefanik’s EPAC, have also endorsed Makki.

“I’m grateful that conservative leaders and grassroots organizations are locking arms to ensure we have the necessary resources to take back the House and return conservative leadership to Florida’s 13th Congressional District. It is truly an honor to have the trust and confidence of Leader Kevin McCarthy and the NRCC to be the Republican nominee that ends Charlie Crist’s 30 years of being a career politician and represents Pinellas County’s voice in Washington,” said Makki.
