Grant Strobl, chair of the Young Americans For Freedom chapter at the University of Michigan and a member of the 14th Congressional District GOP Executive Committee, was recently named to Red Alert Politics "30 Under 30" list for his activism on Michigan's most liberal campus.

Strobl recently interned with Sean Hannity and attended the RNC in Cleveland.

“When you have confidence in your beliefs, and are respectful, there is no need to worry about the naysayers," Strobl said in a statement. "If I gave up when high school administrators tried to stop me from hosting conservative speakers, or when college professors and administrators tried to silence conservative beliefs, I would not be where I am today. This recognition is a great honor and I am humbled to be on a list with such great young leaders,” Strobl said.

Previous Strobl projects include organizing a debate between Bill Ayers and Dinesh D'Souza...

14th Congressional District Chair Jannine Kateff praised Strobl work.
“Grant has made significant contributions to growing the 14th District Republicans,” Kateff said. “Our entire Executive Committee is proud to have Grant on our team.”

According to a press release:
"Strobl, who is 20, attends the University of Michigan where he majors in International Studies and Political Science with a minor in German. He is expected to graduate with the class of 2018. He currently serves on the national Board of Governors of Young American’s for Freedom, a project of Young America’s Foundation. In 2015, Grant was elected to Michigan’s 14th Congressional District Republican Executive Committee. He recently attended the Democratic and Republican National Conventions as part of his summer project working with Sean Hannity on Fox News Channel in New York.

The Red Alert Politics fifth annual “30 under 30” list highlights young, right-of-center people who are making a difference on their campuses and in their communities. The people on this list were selected for their passion, their dedication to conservative principles even in the face of opposition, and for their influence across the country."

  1. Amazing for a young man of his age. Congrats Grant!

  2. Grant Strobl voted against a 14th District Republican committee resolution opposing Proposal 1 back in 2015. Is that how Janine Kateff thinks we should be growing the Republican party? By standing silent as elected Republicans massively expand state government using money taken from Michigan families?

  3. I voted against Proposal 1 on election day and I am vehemently opposed to tax hikes to pay for things that we should be paying for already. I was always opposed to Proposal 1. The way I voted at that meeting was to end debate and let the people decide at the voting booth. You must not have been listening to what I said! If you have a bone to pick with me, email me or call me, that's the mature thing to do.

  4. Thank you a bunch for sharing this with all of us you actually realize what you are talking about! Bookmarked. Please also seek advice from my site =). We could have a hyperlink change contract between us!
