WASHINGTON, DC - The Young Republican National Federation (YRNF) announced its appeal today for Young Republicans to submit their questions for the CNN/YouTube Debate scheduled for November 28 from St. Petersburg, Florida and airing live on CNN and YouTube.
"We have been advocating for this debate since the summer and are pleased to see our Republican presidential candidates participating in this particular debate format," said Jessica Colon, YRNF Chairman. "YouTube resonates with our generation and now its time for young Republicans around the country to submit their questions and have their voices heard." (A video appeal has been launched at youtube.com/youngrepublicans and at yrnf.com.)
The unique premise for the November 28 CNN/YouTube debate is, in addition to the traditional format where a moderator or panel ask questions directly, candidates will also take questions submitted from the public through YouTube's website, youtube.com/debates.
YouTube and CNN are responsible for which questions are aired at the debate. Young Republicans (YRs) are strongly encouraged to submit questions for the Republican presidential candidates by November 25 to advocate the YR voice, concerns, and interests.
To submit questions, Young Republicans need to go to youtube.com/debates and turn in their questions by November 25 to be considered for airing during the CNN/YouTube Debate.
The Young Republicans (YRs) are the oldest political youth organization in the United States. Since its creation, the Young Republican National Federation (YRNF) has established itself as the premier Republican grassroots organization in the nation, providing essential grassroots support for Republican candidates and conservative issues on the local, state and national levels.
