Knox Republicans make their mark

Excerpt from the Register-Mail:

A senior at Knox College, Harris is among 11 members of the Knox Republicans group on campus and is among the five or six who attend meetings. Politically, they are the minority. The Knox Democrats group boasts 30 to 35 members.

But Harris says he likes the challenge.

“To be a Republican at Knox is great. It really challenges what you believe and makes you appreciate the other side and what it is like to be a minority,” [Knox senior Maurice] Harris says.

Another lonely Republican at Knox College and political science chair for more than 20 years, Louise Sue Hulett says liberals far outnumber the conservatives on campus. “Sixty percent would be my guess of the liberal students, with a core of 20 percent of conservatives and another 20 percent that don’t want to be identified politically,” Hulett says.
