From the Chairman:

April 27, 2010

Much is being said about “remembering” the actions of Congress in November when we go to the polls. But we need to “remember” now and not wait until November! We are in the midst of early “one-stop” voting here in North Carolina. You can vote at three locations in Watauga County now through 1:00 PM on May 1: Plemmons Student Union, ASU (only through Friday), the Board of Elections on King Street, and the Agricultural Conference Center on Poplar Grove Road. Otherwise, primary election day is next Tuesday, May 4, and you will vote in your designated polling place. There are unaffiliated voters running that will not have “party” designations. The school board race is unaffiliated but three Republicans are running: Delora Hodges, Jim Smith, and Lee Warren. The judicial races are also unaffiliated, but there are conservative judges running. Anne Marie Calabria needs to keep her judicial seat. Two conservatives are running for the other seat currently held by Rick Elmore. He is running again along with another conservative, Steven Walker. You may vote for just one of those men. The NCGOP site (www.ncgop.org) lists the endorsements for conservative judges. Please tell your friends who are registered unaffiliated (independent) to request a Republican ballot. (They may choose which ballot they want). The primary election will determine the sort of candidates we will have in November!!! Please vote today!!!!

“Not Evil Just Wrong”

April 14, 2010

The College Republicans will be showing “Not Evil Just Wrong” on April 21st at 7pm on ASU’s campus in I.G. Greer Hall.  “Not Evil Just Wrong” is a video documentary highlighting the faulty science used in Al Gore’s ” An Inconvenient Truth.”

Let’s support the ASU College Republicans with a strong conservative gathering on campus. We all will benefit from the facts presented in the video.

I.G. Greer Hall is located behind Founders Hall and the BB Dougherty Administration building. Park beside the ASU tennis courts.

Call ASU College Republican President, Anthony Riccio, with questions. 336-707-2294

Again, let’s show a liberal dominated campus that conservatives are alive and well here in Watauga County!
