College Republicans Elect Dane Nealson as State Chairman

Ames, Ia. – Dane Nealson was elected as the next Chairman of the Iowa Federation of College Republicans on Saturday.  Nealson who is a junior at Iowa State, along with his running mate Matt Sexton a freshman at UNI, campaigned for several months outlasting a group of potential challengers while stopping at most of the 22 College Republican chapters throughout the state.   

In the end, support for Nealson and Sexton was unanimous and they immediately took over as Chairman and Vice Chairman at the Iowa Federation of College Republican Convention in Ames. Below is the joint statement to supporters released on their campaign website http://nealsonsexton09.wordpress.com/:

“We would like to extend a warm thank you to all of you for your support throughout the last four months. We are honored to serve as the newly elected Chair and Vice-Chair of the Iowa Federation of College Republicans.

Throughout our campaign, the enthusiasm we saw from College Republican members throughout the state was nothing short of inspiring. While our federation faces many challenges over the next year, we feel very confident about the direction of our organization. Many chapters are starting to see increased interest as President Obama, Governor Culver, and legislative Democrats continue to pursue policies which will devastate our state and our country in the months and years to come.

We are excited to get moving with the policy objectives we’ve set forth, and look forward to working with College Republican chapters, our state legislators, and the Republican Party of Iowa as we continue to advance the Republican cause on college campuses throughout the state. Working together, we can establish one of the premier grassroots networks in the nation.

With our newly elected board, we plan to take IFCR to new heights, and with your help, we believe we can make it happen. Stay involved, keep your heads high, and keep fighting the good fight! Thank you again for your support; it has inspired us and we will take that enthusiasm with us moving forward.”

Along with Nealson and Sexton, two other positions were voted upon by the various delegations in attendance.   Muscatine Community College freshman Emily Lofgren edged out UNI freshman Jared Parker for Secretary and Iowa State junior Paul Vidmar was elected unanimously as Treasurer.

Nelsons’ administration plans on filling the rest of the executive board with appointments throughout the rest of April.
