Teenage Republicans to Host Al Quie

Alex Friedman
State Chair
Minnesota Teenage Republicans

On Saturday June 9th at 7:00PM, the Minnesota Teenage Republicans (TARs) will be hosting an event featuring former Governor Albert H. Quie. The event will be held at Minnetonka High School, room to be decided.

This is the second state-wide meeting in Alex Friedman's term as chair. We at the Minnesota Teenage Republicans hope to use this meeting and its high profile guest to attract more teenagers to the organization. Right now, there are 5 official chapters of TARs functioning in the state. (Minnetonka, Coon Rapids, Mounds View, Perham and Lakeville North), with a much larger number of "young republican" clubs in the state that are not yet affiliated with the central organization. We hope to increase the number of youth that are in contact with conservative principles and ultimately increase the number of teenage republican clubs. In 2004 TARs had over 20 clubs in
the state. It is not difficult to reach this goal again.

Albert H. Quie was born in 1923 in Dennison, MN. He was first elected to the Minnesota State Senate in 1954. An election to Congress followed just four years later, and Quie served with distinction as a Representative of Minnesota's First District from 1958 until 1979. In 1978, he ran for Governor against incumbent Rudy Perpich and won. He served out a full term, and since then, has served as an elder
statesman in the Republican Party of Minnesota. Governor Quie will be talking about His personal experience in politics, and why teenagers should get involved.

Minnesota Teenage Republicans is an organization dedicated to educating kids between the ages of 13 and 18 on Republican Party politics, and getting Republicans candidates elected. This event is open to any high school student for free, as well as any adult chaperone's or community leaders.
