Orange Democrats Elect 21-Year-Old To Lead Party

To win re-election, President Obama needs the same level of support from college students as he enjoyed in 2008. That’s why this story caught my eye. I’d say it’s a smart move by Orange County Democrats, who will be looking to turn out every possible UNC-Chapel Hill Democrat they can find.


Despite his age, UNC student Matt Hughes has shown the Orange County Democratic Party he is the man for the job.

Hughes, a North Carolina Teaching Fellow and political science major, was elected as the Orange County Democratic Party chairman Monday.

And many think his young perspective will be an advantage.
