Over the weekend, Georgia Association of College Republicans Chairman Will Kremer announced he will run for a second term when the organization holds its annual convention in April. Kremer cited the GACR’s expansion success–chapters have been started in at least two campuses in each of the group’s six regions–and a much improved relationship with the Georgia GOP as notable accomplishments of his first term.
With the race not expected to be seriously contested, Kremer is already planning for the 2014-2015 year. Looking forward to the fall elections, he is planning to hold voter registration drives on each campus with a College Republicans chapter in order to get out the young conservative vote. While he wants his organization to be the “boots on the ground” for GOP candidates in contested races, he considers the 12th congressional district race against John Barrow to be his top target. He looks forward to the newly chartered chapter at Georgia Regents University to lead the way in that contest.
After the election is over, Kremer hopes to continue chapter expansion into additional college campuses. He also plans to work with Young Republicans chapters to offer graduating seniors a smooth transition from College Republican membership to YR membership.
