Imbalanced, On Balance

Alex Merchant got a picture and story in the Providence Journal for convincing the faculty at St. George’s School in Middletown — of whom “most… consider themselves liberal” — to let him and other members of the Young Liberals organization skip class to drive up to New Hampshire and volunteer with the Obama campaign. Wouldn’t it have been an amazing learning experience for the faculty to run with the idea and bring up some conservative students to work with a Republican campaign?
Ah, well. With no images to compensate from the high school level, herewith some RI College Republicans on the road for Mitt Romney:

Perhaps the College Republicans should offer outreach for younger kids.
Sarah Highland’s posted a write-up of the College Republicans’ trip. (She’s the one on the right, by the way.)

Hey that’s my picture! Thats fine though, I don’t mind if you use it. My site has a write up of what we did in NH (as well as more pictures). It was a fun experience and really great to work for Governor Romney in such an important primary.
As far as outreach to high school kids, its a great idea to get kids involved at a young age. As a College Republican president, our first priority lies in outreach to college students and we have had no contact with local high schools. Perhaps this is something the state coalitions for different candidates could work on and use the CRs as youth contacts.
