NRCC adds Miami U.S. Rep. Carlos Curbelo to program to help vulnerable Republicans



The National Republican Campaign Committee has named U.S. Rep. Carlos Curbelo to a program to help vulnerable house members. 

Curbelo is the only Florida member on the list of 10 members who were added to the NRCC's Patriots Program Tuesday.

“Our NRCC Patriots are innovators and leaders, constantly upholding the values of their districts which they represent,” said NRCC Chairman Steve Stivers in a statement. “Nancy Pelosi and national Democrats will stop at nothing to take back the House next November. However, these ten are ready to do battle once again and I’m supremely confident they will prevail.”

Curbelo represents a swing district that stretches from Miami-Dade to Key West. His district is a prime target for Democrats because Hillary Clinton won by 16 percentage points while Curbelo beat Democrat Joe Garcia by 12 points. So far, Curbelo faces no challengers.
