Huntsman Campaign Announces Leadership of GenH Youth and Young Professionals Program

Orlando -- In a further boost to Governor Huntsman’s strong support among younger voters, GenH chairman Jeb Bush Jr. today announced national and regional leaders for the campaign’s youth and young professionals program.  The program has 139 campus chapters in 42 states and is growing rapidly.  These numbers make GenH the most broad-based youth program in the Republican field.

Bush appointed Zach Howell, the former chairman of the College Republican National Committee, as the on-staff director of GenH and Mary Anne Huntsman, the governor’s oldest daughter, to head the young professional finance program.

“I am so appreciative of Jeb Bush Jr. and his leadership of this vital initiative,” said Governor Huntsman. “We have made reaching out to younger voters a priority, and with this leadership team we are building a youth movement that is committed to serious, long-term solutions to our nation’s economic and debt crisis.”

“This youth leadership team is unrivaled in experience, energy and ability,” said Bush. “I am proud that GenH is the premier youth and young professionals effort in the Republican field.”

Filling out the leadership team as national co-chairs are former “Students for Daniels” chairman Michael Knowles, former Maryland College Republicans chairman Mike Esteve, New York College Republican chairman Michael Ventre and former “Students for Meg Whitman” chairman Chasen Bullock.

GenH is an outreach program targeted at 18-35 year-olds, which communicates the governor’s message of real solutions to a new generation and engages them in the campaign.
