Rep. Marlin Stutzman, R-3rd, is 38.

At 37, Stutzman is too old for this endorsement

Justin Kuhnle is 34.

Rep. Marlin Stutzman, R-3rd, is getting too long in the tooth for one organization’s interests.

A group named FuturePAC.Us has endorsed Stutzman’s Democratic opponent in the Nov. 4 election, Democrat Justin Kuhnle.

FuturePAC.Us says on its website that its mission is to “help young men and women get elected regardless of party, issues or affiliations.”

It says in a news release that Kuhnle, a Kendallville resident, “embodies the innovative perspective that young Americans have been waiting to see takeover Washington.”

Kuhnle is 34, the same age Stutzman was when he was first elected to Congress. That was way back in 2010. Stutzman will turn 38 this summer.

FuturePAC.Us also has endorsed Adam King, 30, the Republican candidate for a congressional seat representing parts of western Los Angeles. That has to make Kuhnle feel old.

Websites for the Federal Election Commission, the Center for Responsive Politics and the Sunlight Foundation have no information on FuturePAC.Us, which is based in Athens, Georgia, judging by its emailed news release
