NC student Republicans to protest president

Posted by courtneyschultz On January - 14 - 2014

On Jan. 15, President Obama will come to North Carolina State University to speak about the economy.

The North Carolina Federation of College Republicans are planning to protest the event.

The North Carolina Federation of College Republicans Chairman Nate Pencook speaking at the NCGOP Convention in June 2013.

Chairman and CU student Nate Pencook has strong opinions about the upcoming protest.

“It’s laughable that President Obama is coming to North Carolina to speak about the economy he has failed to fix,” Pencook said. “He should use his time here to learn from the leadership of Governor Pat McCrory, House Speaker Thom Tillis, and Senate President Pro-Tem Phil Berger, who helped give North Carolina historic tax reform in this past year, while also lowering our unemployment rate to its lowest point in the last 5 years. The President, however, has given graduating students a bleak outlook come graduation. Because of Obamacare, recent graduates in North Carolina and across the country are having a difficult time finding a job. It’s evident that President Obama does not understand North Carolinians, so much so that even Senator Kay Hagan does not want to be seen with him ahead of her reelection campaign.”

Members of the Campbell College Republicans may participate in the protest.
