College Dems Prez co-heads re-election committee

Kent Wired – Students for Sherrod kicked off this week, with the president of Kent State College Democrats co-leading the effort with the president of College Democrats of Ohio.

The objective of the statewide campaign is to build grassroots support for the re-election Ohio Democratic Senator Sherrod Brown. The group wants to advise the Brown campaign on student issues and “speak to students across the state about Sherrod’s work to improve education for Ohioans of all ages,” according to the senator’s website.

Bryan Staul, president of KSU College Democrats, said that Students for Sherrod’s primary intention is to solidify the young vote in Brown’s favor by visiting colleges and high schools throughout Ohio.

“The most important thing we are trying to do is get students to vote, vote, vote,” Staul said. “We’re focusing on college and older high school students making the case for Brown’s extensive record benefiting students, cutting out waste and providing education for veterans … He’s one of the last strong progressive candidates and one of the last middle class advocates.”
