Penn Stater Elected to Lead PA College Republicans

Fresh off his victory as an off-campus representative, Anthony Christina won another important election on Saturday. However, Christina will have to make decisions more important than sunglasses and Donut Day. During its annual convention, the Pennsylvania Federation of College Republicans voted to name Christina as its Chairman for 2012-2013. As a result, a Penn Stater other than Rick Santorum will have a significant voice to address college students across the commonwealth for the most important election since the last one.

As Chairman of the Pennsylvania Federation of College Republicans, Christina will oversee more than thirty chapters (sorry, Josh), and serve as the liaison between the chapters and the College Republican National Committee. In this position, he hopes to see student turnout in the general election increase as students realize the economic importance that their decisions will have. Although he is a Penn State student, Christina cannot give his school preferential treatment. He insists that he will “advocate in assisting all the chapters throughout the Commonwealth in receiving the support that they need from the Federation.” He calls the local chapter one of the state’s “premier” chapters, and any event or speaker that comes to Penn State will happen because of the club’s own merits.

Saturday’s convention, held in the Pasquerilla Garden Room, hosted College Republicans from Penn State and six other colleges and universities. Congressman Glenn Thompson and Elizabeth Santorum, the former senator’s oldest daughter, addressed the importance of the upcoming November election to the delegates.
