The Crossroads Generation
Sometimes people wonder how younger voters are reacting to Barack Obama’s bid for a second term. Here’s your answer:
The College Republican National Committee and the Young Republican National Federation and have partnered with American Crossroads and the Republican State Leadership Committeeto launch an unprecedented youth initiative, Crossroads Generation, to mobilize young people for Republicans.
Crossroads Generation, which will be structured as an Independent Expenditure Only Committee, will begin with an initial $750,000 in start-up capital. The project is is funded through CRNC, RSLC, and American Crossroads, which have each contributed $250,000 to the project.
With young people facing high unemployment, a grim job market and record high student loan debt, the youth vote is up for grabs.
Crossroads Generation will tap into the CRNC’s membership of more than 250,000 college students on over 1,800 campuses nationwide and the YRNF’s membership of 100,000 young professionals throughout the country.
