YRNF - Hits the Mainstream in Esquire Magazine and Hollywood's "Swing Vote"

WASHINGTON, D.C. --  The Young Republican National Federation takes two major leaps into the pop culture mainstream with a six-page feature in the September issue of Esquire and with a brand appearance in this summer's election-themed movie "Swing Vote," starring Kevin Costner and Kelsey Grammer. The magazine and the movie both released this month.

In "The Elephant in the Room," Esquire Associate Editor Peter Martin documents the activities and attendees of this Spring's Young Republican Leadership Conference in Washington, D.C.
Martin presents a diverse look at Young Republicans (YRs) as the future of the GOP and challenges stereotypes. Calling YRs "the Republican party's best young minds," the article highlights the readiness and willingness of bright and hard working Young Republicans to lead the GOP into the next generation.

"Swing Vote" alludes to the importance of the YRs in today's national campaign politics.
The movie's opening scenes feature dialogue including references to the YRs and the Young Republican National Federation logo.  Use of the YRNF was approved in the early stages of the film's planning.

The Young Republicans (YRs) are the oldest political youth organization in the United States. Since its inception, 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.
The YRNF has a solid record of producing future Republican Party leaders -including Governors, Senators, Congressmen, nationally recognized campaign consultants, and community leaders.
Through recruiting, training and mobilizing people, the YRNF presents an opportunity for ordinary people to do extraordinary things. Through community involvement in political issues, charitable projects and participation in political campaigns, YRs work to improve the world in which we live.
