The Iowa State University College Republicans announced their endorsement today of Jeremy Taylor for Congress.
“Jeremy Taylor has shown that he can provide effective conservative leadership, and would make the residents of IA4 proud in Washington,” said chapter president Jacob Minock. “He’s pro-life, pro-Constitution, pro-gun and pro-God; which means we’re pro-Jeremy Taylor.”
The release said that College Republicans at ISU, and across the state, have long had an unofficial policy of not endorsing until after primaries.
“We take our status as Iowa’s largest and most active College Republican chapter very seriously,” the group said in its release. “With members from across the 4th District, the entire state of Iowa, and the country who have all come to call IA4 home. As other, minuscule, College Republican chapters in IA4 have decided to break from etiquette and endorse candidates, we decided that as Iowa’s premier College Republican chapter, we too should have a say in our district.”
Trevor Kems, a member of the group, said this is a chance to show the Fourth District where the group stands as conservatives.
The group added, “there were many terrific candidates that our members have had the opportunity to hear from this past semester, but one candidate in particular stood out. A candid Iowan with candid Iowan support. An individual who could relate to everyone, who would give specific answers and not typical political fluff. A politician who will vote for his constituents and not his Party. A man truly invested in the future of America, both by his service to this great nation in uniform and in Des Moines, and by his wonderful family; he is the epitome of the American Dream.”
The motion brought forth at Wednesday’s meeting to endorse Taylor was unanimously passed.
