SC Young Republicans Influence Primary Election

Greenville, SC, 18 Jan 2008 - They may be a little wet behind the ears, but South Carolina's Young Republicans know something about getting folks out to the polls. 

The South Carolina Federation of Young Republicans (SCFYR) has worked tirelessly with its local groups: Grand Strand, Midlands, Lowcountry, and Upstate Young Republicans to, not only get out the vote, but get out the Republican vote. The energetic next generation of Republican leaders can be seen crisscrossing the state volunteering for debates, volunteering and working for campaigns, volunteering at the polls, conducting their own polls like the Upstate's "Know Before You Vote" poll, speaking at events, giving TV interviews, meeting with elected officials, and organizing rallies and events like today's "Rock Out the Vote" event in Myrtle Beach.  

"This year before the primaries has only been a dress rehearsal," says SCFYR Chairman Patrick Haddon, "Our Young Republicans are already gearing up for the national election in November and will be going out to assist Young Republicans in battleground states."

"We are extremely excited to see our Young Republicans playing such a large role in the political process," said South Carolina Republican Party Chairman Katon Dawson.
