A group of College Republicans invited some familiar faces to the Lafayette Hotel Thursday night in an effort to raise money so they could attend a political conference in Washington D.C.

The Marietta College Republicans held its fourth annual Fundraiser Dinner.

People got to listen to Congressman Bill Johnson, State Representative Andy Thompson and Nancy Putnam-Hollister.

Proceeds from the fundraiser will help the College Republicans gear up for their trip to the Conservative Political Action Conference (C-PAC) at the nation's capital in March.

"College students, we are the leaders of tomorrow and in a short amount of time, we'll be in the position of leaders of now and it's important for us to educate ourselves now so we can be better leaders in the future," says Marietta College Republicans President, Zach Eddy.

Thompson and Johnson who are up for reelection in November, spoke about their policy issue stances while Putnam-Hollister gave a speech about how the Republican Party can be victorious in upcoming elections.
