“From Montauk to Buffalo, Young Republicans are stepping up to form a new generation of Republican leadership in New York,” said NYSYR Chairman Peter Giunta“This year, more than 80 Young Republicans will carry our standard into the ongoing battle to save our state — but, more importantly, this is our chance to take back local control from the out-of-touch, power-craven Democrats.  Our efforts here set the stage for next year’s election, where we will marshal this army of Young Republicans to protect our Republican Majority in Congress and fire radical Kirsten Gillibrand.”
