The College Republican National Committee, in partnership with the Republican State Leadership Committee, NewRepublican.org and others, has put together a new website targeting youth and young adult involvement in the political process.  The CRNC recently conducted a survey of young adults ages 18-29.  The survey "found millennials give Democrats much stronger marks on the question of which party cares more about a range of issues, including education, health care and economic growth." (WSJ)

Barack Obama’s entire margin of victory in 2012 was provided by 18-to-29 year old voters. If young voters had voted like other age groups, Mitt Romney would have won the popular vote and the electoral college, with significant gains for Republicans down ballot.

Senator Paul Delivers for Christian County

Senator Paul Delivers for Christian County

Senator Paul was successful in adding an amendment to the transportation bill in the Senate to create I-169: S.Amdt. #3967 - Designating the Southern Section of the Edward T. Breathitt Parkway as Interstate 169.

This is the kind of leadership we're accustomed to seeing from our Junior Senator. For nearly six years Rand Paul has been fighting against government bureaucracy and bloated spending, in an effort to limit the scope of government to allow free markets to lift all Kentuckians.  Sen. Paul knows how important the Pennyrile Parkway interstate designation is to economic development and commerce in Christian County. We proudly #StandWithRand

“Many of our nation’s roads and bridges are in deep need of repairs and replacement. I have always made a point to fight against international infrastructure spending and instead to refocus on our needs here in Kentucky. My amendment will designate the southern portion of Edward T. Breathitt Parkway as Interstate 169, which as a result will increase economic development and opportunities for thousands of Kentuckians,” Sen. Paul said.

 

The amendment has gained support throughout Western Kentucky, including Mayor Carter Hendricks of Hopkinsville, Kentucky. 

 

"We are excited that Senator Paul has led the initiative to help achieve interstate designation for the southern section of the Pennyrile Parkway. For many years, our community leadership has advocated for this very project and we look forward to seeing it come to fruition and to reaping the economic benefits of interstate status for our Parkway," Mayor Carter Hendricks said.

 

Sen. Paul also introduced an amendment to the Transportation and Housing Appropriations Bill, which would increase funding for highway projects by approximately $8 billion by reclaiming unspent foreign aid from last year.
