Shawn Fago of the Orange County Young Republicans and George Andrews, executive director of the county’s GOP, got to talking one day about how they could attract more young Republicans to the party.
Half-joking, Andrews suggested a swimsuit calendar. Republicans gone wild? Not exactly.
Instead, the Young Republicans have created a “Women of the Orange County Young Republicans” calendar that isn’t as racy as, say, Sports Illustrated, but is definitely designed to disabuse the stereotype that the GOP is dominated by stuffy, old, white men.
The calendar, available for $15 at RedCounty.com (subscribe.redcounty.com/ocyr_calendar.aspx), features young, local and beautiful Republicans Fago hopes will entice young men to join the Young Republican ranks.
