Voter registration[edit]

I've never seen college republicans try and register voters, ever.. the only time they get involved in voter registartion seems to be when they're harassing people for registering to vote, thus the accuracy tag--64.12.116.133 03:28, 4 September 2005 (UTC)

Well, e.g., in their official manual for campus chapters (get the PDF here), they give instructions on conducting a canvass of campus, and include the following instructions: "If the student is a Republican or leans Republican, offer him a voter registration form and have him fill it out right there, telling him you would be happy to send it in for him". Also, a quick google shows CRs registering voters at Wellesley, University of Texas, agitating for the right to do so at Princeton, and again at University of Pennsylvania and the University of Chicago. HTH. Is this sufficient to remove the accuracy tag? Best, Meelar (talk) 07:57, September 4, 2005 (UTC)
My two cents? Even your own research says that "If the student is a Republican or leans Republican ..." That's campaigning, not a voter registration drive. By the same token, College Democrat chapters have been acused of the exact offense. Perhaps a compromise? YearginSM 15:07, 16 December 2005 (UTC)

CRNC problems[edit]

I'm sorry, but I have been told by multiple credible (Republican) sources that there was chicanery in the 2005 CRNC elections. I don't think anyone has seriously disputed Foers claims in his NR piece either. 23:36, 25 June 2006 —Preceding unsigned comment added by 38.115.160.212 (talkcontribs)

Someone needs to finish the sections on the CRNC problems. 06:49, 21 November 2006 —Preceding unsigned comment added by Eshatologist (talkcontribs)

Unsourced material[edit]

A lot of information on this site was unsourced, so I added a few links. Will add more later when I get time. Probably add more about history of CRNC and how it changed from being under the RNC to being a 527. Maybe some stuff about the increase in field reps in the last few years and plans for 2008--2Snazzy (talk) 05:59, 28 November 2007 (UTC)

Separate Wilkins Page?[edit]

Should we create a separate page for Morgan Wilkins? I hear that she's running for some CRNC posts in Kentucky, and is still stirring up trouble. Any thoughts?--2Snazzy 01:47, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

  • I don't know how stable that MSNBC video is (it might be taken down at any time). In case that happens, here is an alternate link: [[1]]. Yeah, it is from a liberal group, but they have an accurate transcript of the segment. It isn't opinion, since this article doesn't list the content of what Olbermann said. --RedShiftPA (talk) 18:19, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

Blanking[edit]

On two occasions (one and two) User:Thomastedder has blanked the well-sourced section about Rove. You must establish consensus on the talk page in order to delete something like this. --Dr. Ivo Shandor (talk) 04:16, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

Title[edit]

I would like to know what people think about the title, since the organization is technically the "College Republican National Committee," but I think "College Republican" is better since it can encompass the entire history of the organization under different names dating back to 1892. --Dr. Ivo Shandor (talk) 23:00, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

Ashley Todd[edit]

Should Ashley Todd be include as a notable CR? Good or bad, she is notable. Here is here YouTube Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GqsBlXhnFng —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.109.221.134 (talk) 09:48, 25 October 2008 (UTC)

Agreed. Material has been added. No need for the youtube link, though.--Dr. Ivo Shandor (talk) 04:50, 26 October 2008 (UTC)
