College Republicans Gather This Weekend

This weekend I'm looking forward to spending time with our College Republican leaders at their Reagan Library retreat and conference in Simi Valley.

The California College Republicans have proven to be not only an important part of the Republican future in California, but the Republican present as well. CRs are learning the skills necessary for fighting and winning Republican campaigns in California, while at the same time contributing to present day victories around the state.

In my home county, where we had seven special elections in 18 months, CRs came in from around the state to provide additional ground troops that were essential to success for such newly Republican elected officials as Congressman Brian Bilbray and San Diego Councilman Kevin Faulconer.

On campus, CRs are providing balance to liberalism both inside and outside of the classroom. Take a look at the recent polling on where college faculty fall on the political spectrum, and the need for effective CR groups to provide ideological balance becomes clear. At UC Berkeley, hardly a conservative bastion, the CRs have consistently proven to be the largest campus student organization (!), and probably the best organized.

Ryan Clumper today leads the state College Republicans, following in the footsteps of Stephen Puetz (who today works for Assemblyman Martin Garrick), and Michael Davidson (who leads Generation Next). Special recognition goes to Michael Davidson for setting the world class standards to which the California CRs continue to meet.
