The 2008 Convention

Our program at the 2008 Republican National Convention brought young people from around the country to St. Paul and gave them face-to-face contact with some of the top leaders of the Republican Party.

For example, participants had breakfast with Karl Rove, lunch with anti-tax leader Grover Norquist, and special presentations from House GOP Leader John Boehner, Platform Chair Congressman Kevin McCarthy, and the national media director for Senator John McCain's Presidential campaign. 

They participated in events with former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and rising young Republican leaders of the House of Representatives including House Chief Deputy Whip Eric Cantor, House Budget Committee Leader Paul Ryan, and House Ways and Means Committee Leader Devin Nunes and other Republican leaders.
Many of our participants are now involved in Republican campaigns, organizations, and political projects all over the nation.
