The College Republicans at the University of Georgia is the largest CRs Chapter in the nation! We are the official arm of the Georgia Association of College Republicans and the College Republican National Committee on campus at UGA. We have been recognized for our excellence in campaign work, campus outreach, bringing in high-profile speakers and training some of the brightest minds of the political and public policy world. Our organization has been an active force in elections at the campus, local, statewide and national levels. We have traveled across the southeast for presidential elections, organized rallies for gubernatorial candidates, and we have provided hundreds of volunteer hours to local campaigns.
During the 2010 elections, we worked to elect Nathan Deal as Governor of Georgia, Austin Scott to Congress in the 8th District, defeating Democratic incumbent Jim Marshall, and a total sweep of all constitutional offices for the first time in Georgia’s history. In all, we volunteered close to 3000 hours, making us the number-one chapter in the nation for number of volunteer hours during the 2010 election cycle.
We were also very active in 2012, helping Governor Scott Walker in Wisconsin and campaigning for Mitt Romney in Virginia and Florida.
CRs at UGA became heavily involved in the 2014 midterm elections, helping the Republican Party to take control of the Senate for the first time in eight years, and we continued our involvement in the 2016 election, when Donald Trump became the 45th President of the United States, handing the Republicans the White House and breaking eight years of Democratic control.
In 2018, CRs at UGA provided critical support as volunteers, interns and paid staff members in the midterm elections. Our members were extremely involved in our local elections, where we worked successfully to flip two Athens-area State House districts. Furthermore, our members worked relentlessly to contribute to yet another Republican sweep of statewide constitutional offices, including the election of Athens native Brian Kemp as the 83rd Governor of Georgia.
As the 2020 election begins to unfold, our organization and members have already begun to campaign for Republicans all across the state. With as much energy, passion and drive as our members have, we will keep Georgia red!
While the College Republicans at the University of Georgia welcomes the multitude of different views from the political figures we host at our meetings, the beliefs of our guests do not necessarily reflect the beliefs of our organization or our members, and therefore, should not be considered representatives of the College Republicans at UGA.
