SOUTH CAROLINA COLLEGE REPUBLICANS ELECT NEW STATE CHAIRMAN

Greenville, SC – The South Carolina College Republicans Federation hosted its annual statewide convention on Saturday April 4 at 11:00 a.m. at Furman University. The convention was well attended by many chapters throughout the state.
Gubernatorial candidate Brent Nelsen, a Furman professor, was the keynote speaker for the event. Nelsen spoke about fiscal responsibility, his social values and the importance of young voters, saying, “You all are the future of the Republican Party. Without College Republicans, the party would not be where it is today.”

Delegates from various chapters also elected a new state chairman of the SCCRF. Katie Welborn, a Junior at Clemson University, was unanimously elected in one round of voting. Welborn said of her victory, “I am excited to lead this great organization. We have a great future and I know that South Carolina will remain a strong Republican state with the help of College Republicans.”
