COLLEGE REPUBLICAN NATIONAL COMMITTEE
OPERATION RED NOVEMBER RECAP
Operation Red November was a grassroots movement by College Republicansnationwide to recruit and mobilize college students to take back our future by voting and volunteering for Republican candidates in the 2010 mid-term election. We did just that, and we did it BIG! The below numbers quantify several goals of the program, which includedtraining twenty-three paid field representatives and our College Republican stateleaders to recruit students to join the College Republicans, set up volunteeropportunities for them and then encourage them to volunteer, as well as vote for,the Republican Party and its message of eliminating the federal budget deficit,eradicating the national debt and returning government spending back tosustainable, responsible levels. The numbers below speak for themselves, but I will say this: these numbersstrongly suggest that in the more than fifty "toss up" Gubernatorial, Senatorialand Congressional races, of which the Republican Party won more than twenty-five, the College Republican efforts were the difference between the Republican candidate winning andlosing. Without College Republicans and Operation Red November, there would, without question, be fewerRepublican Governors, Senators and Congressman waiting to be officially sworn in January 2011. The College Republicans were indispensable to the Republican victories on Tuesday, November 2.
The numbers prove it.

Of the students recruited to join the College Republicans and Operation Red November, the fieldrepresentatives recruited
as volunteers who called, door-knocked and rallied Republicancandidates to victory all over the country.
Operation Red November Field Representatives were responsible for setting up
get-out-the- vote phone banks,
campus recruitment events,
Red November rallies,
Red November sign waves and
absentee ballot drives. This comes to a total of
separate political events that young people participated in this election season directly attributable to Operation Red November and it's College Republican Field Representatives. What we saw this election was that the Democrats' reckless policies got students paying attention. TheRepublicans' message of job creation, lower taxes and less spending got them thinking, and, as the numbersabove show, Operation Red November got them to the polls and Republican volunteer centers. This was aRed November, but make no mistake, without the College Republicans, this November would have been alot less red.
