Gus Wagner, state chairman of Missouri Young Republicans, will speak to the Cape Girardeau County Republican Party Central Committee tonight.
The meeting will be at 7 p.m. in the University Center Ballroom at Southeast Missouri State University.
Young Republican membership is open to people 19 to 40 years old with an interest in conservative politics. Young Republicans serve as party volunteers, campaign leaders and even run for public office, Wagner said.
"Although we do not currently have an organized group in Cape Girardeau County, we are very interested in establishing one to add to the conservative base that has been established here for years," he said.
Missouri Young Republicans have existed for more than 60 years. The group has more than 1,000 members.
