– The College Republican National Committee is “the oldest and largest youth organization in the country” that was founded in 1892. The first election that the Committee participated in was the re-election campaign of President McKinley.
– We need to talk to young people about “why conservative values matter in their lives…young voters are not inherently liberal.”
– “We have a great ability to convince millennials that they are conservative and they should be voting Republican. It requires a consistent and sustained effort on our college campuses.”
– “Young voters have had the disadvantage of only hearing from one side. The democrats make a consistent effort to go to campuses to talk to young people. Our party is good at a lot of things but this hasn’t been one of them.” We are trying address this issue.
