Last fall, the media hailed the great Republican wave of 2014.

They touted the success we had in swing states and blue states.

They did in-depth analyses of the strategies employed and the sentiments of the country that led to such a decisive victory.

But, what the media didn’t cover was the great triumph the GOP had with young voters last fall.

In Arkansas and Alaska, our candidates won the youth vote outright. In states like Louisiana, North Carolina, Virginia and Iowa, young voters swung away from the candidates they had supported six years earlier.

Former Sen. Kay Hagan (D-NC) had Millennials swing away from her by an astounding 33 points compared to 2008.

Nationally, compared to the last time the 2014 Democrat Senators were on the ballot in 2008, Republicans won 13 percent more of the youth vote.

Our success wasn’t by chance. Early in 2013, we put a plan in place to engage with more young voters, to listen to their concerns and to make sure our candidates were addressing their needs.
