“As Chairwoman of the 14th District GOP, I am pleased that our Executive Committee voted to support this amazing student led program at the University of Michigan,” said Janine Kateff.  “Grant Strobl, one of the youngest GOP Executive Committee members in all of Michigan, is an absolute leader --–in Michigan and nationally--- in helping to educate and reinforce conservative principles on campus. Grant is valued member of our Committee, and we salute his and YAF’s efforts to bring this important event to our area.”

“YAF is excited to host this very high profile event at the University,”   said Grant Strobl.  “As president of YAF, I know how much effort the team has invested to make this event truly memorable.  We could not have two more radically different debaters than Mr. D’Souza and Mr. Ayers.   We expect a packed house and a lively debate.”
