Raleigh, NC – On Monday, April 22, members of the North Carolina Federation of Young Professional Republicans and the North Carolina Federation of College Republicans will gather in Raleigh to hold "Day at the Capitol." The day will include tours of museums, the Capitol building, and the Governor’s mansion. The group will be meeting with Supreme Court Justices, Lieutenant Governor Dan Forest, and numerous Representatives and Senators.

“This is a great opportunity for Young Republicans across the state to connect with our leaders and let them know what the younger generation is thinking,” said Jonathan Bandy, Chairman of the N.C. Young Professional Republicans. "It is very difficult for a young professional or a college student to take off from their daily lives and travel to Raleigh to meet with their representatives. We hope that through the Day At The Capitol more young conservatives would be encouraged to come to Raleigh and feel unified with other young people to let their voices be heard."
During meeting with the Lieutenant Governor and state legislators, the Young Republicans will share their view on how government should tackle several issues facing our state. The day will end with the group attending House and Senate sessions Monday night.
