My Fellow Young Republicans:
Congratulations! Your hard work, dedication, and votes culminated in Tuesday's historical Republican comeback. Young Republicans around the country were engaged in hundreds of campaigns, worked countless hours on behalf of candidates, and spread the conservative message to millions of voters. You were a big part of this nationwide victory, and we all thank you for that!
As we settle into a post-campaign world, let's not lose our momentum. We have done a lot of work to start a change in our country, now let us get to the hard work of helping support our elected officials, our government, our party, and strengthen our great country!
The Young Republican National Federation (YRNF) and all our country's leaders need your continued involvement and support in the political process and your communities and look forward to working with you in the months and years to come. The YRNF experienced its most active election activities to date since its inception:
- The YRNF developed and implemented the largest campaign deployment effort assisting in Firing Pelosi ("OPERATION: REGAINING THE MAJORITY") deploying volunteers on the ground in 12 states: IL, OH, NC, NY, AL, CA, WI, FL, CT, NV, PA, and VA.

- "OPERATION REGAINING THE MAJORITY" deployments which included door-to-door activities and phone banking- impacted the above states, and the following races of interest from those states declared victory on Tuesday: Senator-elect Pat Toomey (PA), Governor-elect Tom Corbin (PA), Congresswoman-elect Martha Roby (AL), Senator-elect Rob Portman (OH), Governor-elect John Kasich (OH), the Ohio Statehouse (now under republican control), every statewide executive office in Ohio; Congresswoman-elect Nan Heyworth (NY), the North Carolina General Assembly (now under republican control), Supreme Court Justice-elect Judge Barbara Jackson (NC), Governor-elect Scott Walker (WI), Senator-elect Ron Johnson (WI), Congressman-elect Sean Duffy (WI-7), Congressman-elect Reid Ribble. (WI-8), Attorney General-elect JB Von Hollen (WI), Congressman-Elect Randy Hultgren (IL-14), Congressman-Elect Adam Kinzinger (IL-11) and Senator-Elect Mark Kirk (IL), Congressman-elect Robert Hurt (VA-5), Congressman-elect Scott Rigell (VA-2), Congressman-elect Morgan Griffith (VA-9), Governor-elect Rick Scott (FL), Senator-elect Marco Rubio (FL), and Congressman-elect Daniel Webster (FL-8) to name a few (some races of interest are still pending final results!).

- YRNF developed, produced, and aired in the Raleigh-Durham, NC and Cleveland, OH markets its first ever commercial and launched its related issues site: www.whereareallthejobs.com.
- Nine million voters under 30 voted, and exit polls show the gap between those who voted Democrat vs. Republican was closed by 10% compared to 2008 (66% in 2008 to 56% in 2010)
Clearly a successful election for Republican candidates and Young Republicans around the country! So what is next? Check back often to www.yrnf.com for details to come...
