(New York, NY) The New York Young Republican Club, Inc. (NYYRC) was proud to host and number of speakers at their monthly January Meeting of the NYYRC General Membership.

Ed Cox, former Senate Candidate spoke to 100 Members of the Club, telling stories about his days as a Young Republican. He was excited to speak to the "Future of the Republican Party" and delved into the issues the GOP will face in the immediate and distant future.

NYYRC President Dennis Cariello said, "Ed Cox is a great man and we are very proud to have hosted him last night, our first meeting in 2006. Our Young Republicans were impressed by his knowledge of the issues and his passion for the Republican Party." He continued, "With such an extensive background, he would be a great candidate for any office and I hope that he will, one day, revisit that option."

The NYYRC also hosted Claudia Rosett, the Journalist-in-Residence at the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, who discussed her extensive and ground-breaking work on the Oil-for-Food Scandal.

President Cariello noted "Ms. Rosett's work has truly been a great public service. In uncovering much of the truth behind the largest financial scandal in the history of the world, she has help shed light on a secretive organization that is increasingly less a tool for peace than a safe-haven for despots and frauds." He continued, "We are all in debt to her and I sincerely hope that she continues her good work and gets to the bottom of this matter in a way that the Volcker Commission did not."

The New York Young Republican Club, Inc., is a not-for-profit political organization that exists to bring Republicans aged 18-40 together to discuss the Republican Party platform and aid the Republican in the education of the public about the Republican agenda and the promotion of Republican candidates for office.
