Washington, DC (CNN)In a push to galvanize young Democrats to run for office, a political action committee focused on electing young, down-ballot candidates in swing districts announced Monday a national campaign to support 50 millennial and Gen Z candidates under the age of 45 ahead of the 2022 midterm elections.

The Next 50's primary goal is to bolster young candidates who may shy out of running because they fear they lack the adequate financial resources or support network to do so, Zak Malamed, the group's 27-year-old co-founder, told CNN.

"The first question prospective candidates are often asked by the Democratic Party before they run is: 'How much can you raise from your personal network?'" Malamed said.

For its next round, the Next 50 will work with its leadership council to endorse candidates primarily in states with competitive gubernatorial or US Senate races, Malamed said.

In her role on the leadership council, Finkenauer, who first ran for local office in Iowa at age 24 and then for US Congress at 28, said she hopes to provide guidance to young candidates looking to launch their own campaigns.
