Twelve GW College Democrats headed to Georgia on Friday to campaign for Democratic senatorial candidate, Jim Martin.
CD president, Cory Struble, said the trip was funded by Martin’s campaign and that 48 other students from Georgetown, Howard, American, and Catholic universities joined the CDs.
Struble said he had no problem recruiting members to attend the trip despite the trip’s timing.
“We actually experienced a remarkable enthusiasm among our members,” said Struble, a senior. “(Martin’s) campaign contacted us on Friday, a Google form went up that night, and by mid-day Sunday we had 30 spots filled–the quickest turnaround of any trip we’ve ever done.”
Struble agreed with his CR counterpart and said this trip is particularly important.
“As Bill Clinton said, we don’t need a firewall, we need a bridge,” Struble said. “Many Republicans are going to do everything they can to obstruct progress. Democrats need a filibuster-proof majority to make real change.”
