The September issue of Esquire has a fine article called “The Elephant in the Room,” a look inside the Young Republican Leadership Conference held in April in Washington, D.C. With the article runs a photo gallery of Young Republicans who offer their thoughts on the party, John McCain and why they came to the GOP — and two of them are from here in the Bay Area:
Sean Conner, 24, Oakland, on his favorite Republican: “Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, the ranking member on Foreign Affairs. She’s just amazing.”
Jennifer Rodriguez, 26, Fremont, on GOP problems: “The Republican Party didn’t find me; I found it. That’s a problem — we’re not reaching people.”
