OFFICIAL STATEMENT: Chartering with College Republicans United
Last night, a unanimous decision was made amongst the voting members of the College Republicans at Iowa State University to fully decouple and leave both the legacy and club name associated with Iowa Federation of College Republicans (IFCR) and the college Republican National Committee (CRNC) behind us. We have officially chartered with College Republicans United instead, and we will be changing the name of our club accordingly. This was not an easy decision, nor one taken lightly, but it has been determined to be necessary in order to continue championing authentic conservatism in the state of Iowa. We have always been dedicated to fighting for what is right, and that includes working against Republicans in name only (RINOs) that seek to liberalize and destroy the Republicans Party from within.
Throughout our years as a chapter, we have never seen assistance from the IFCR or CRNC in many regards. Whether it was with campaigning or legislating, we had to work on these issues alone. We have worked successfully in many regards, from helping congressional and Presidential campaigns win in Iowa, to running 11 students for our Student Government and winning a near-majority. We have always taken pride in being College Republicans, but we do not believe that the groups associated with the ‘College Republicans’ name reflect conservative values anymore.
We have seen time after time a lack of professionalism from the IFCR and CRNC, whether it was contacting our places of employment due to disagreements on social media, swearing at, and making inappropriate remarks towards our members and executive board, or holding a secret midnight defederation vote for our chapter (to which members of the IFCR central committee in support of our chapter were not invited). Many chapters of College Republicans came to our defense against the improper removal, we commend those chapters and federations that fought against RINO cancel culture. The IFCR continues to cede ground to the left, chastising anyone to the right of the Establishment.
College Republicans United presents the future of conservatism; boldly and unflinchingly upholding conservative values and putting America first. They have achieved major victories in the state of Arizona, and we look forward to working with them to keep Iowa great. We are now proud to announce that we are no longer the College Republicans, but the College Republicans United at Iowa State University. Through uniting rather than dividing Americans and the conservative movement, we will continue to work to Make America Great Again!
