As the Chairman of the Texas Young Republicans, I am continuously challenged with making sure that our federated clubs are reaching the next generation of voters with a conservative message. Younger voters are far more receptive to conservative ideas than they have been in the past. TYRF has had great success recruiting new individuals to join our clubs and we now have 25 federated chapters all across the state of Texas.
In the 2014 Election Cycle, our members completed over 100,000 calls through phone banks, made thousands of in-person contacts through block walks, and we are proud to have 7 members currently in elected office.
We are in the process of training club leaders to identify new potential members and encourage them to become precinct chairs in their local county parties. We have found that this will increase the likelihood of our members being more actively involved in the party and equip them with the tools needed to successfully recruit conservative voters.
