(TheRedWire.com) – Fox News Digital in a recent report noted that five youth advisory council members from the Republican National Committee have resigned as they are dissatisfied with the lack of effort from the party to draw in young voters.

The council was created by the RNC and is being co-chaired by Rep. Kat Cammack, R-Fla., and Rep. Mike Lawler, R-N.Y., with a focus on youth voter outreach. The council members all belong to the millennials and Gen Z generations. However, out of the 16 members of the board, five have resigned because of what they found to be a “lack of vision” from the GOP.

In a letter sent to RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel the five individuals noted that originally they had been honored to join the newly formed campaign and had believed that this was going to be an important undertaking from the GOP in bringing in young voters from across the United States.

However, as they pointed out, the decision to leave the committee was one that they took quite seriously and had decided on because of the lack of goals and organization. They further noted that the Advisory Council lacked the necessary vision.

All of the members who withdrew were “elected officials” from Texas, Missouri, Iowa, Florida, and West Virginia who had stated that when they accepted the position they had believed that their proven skills to mobilize young voters would be used to mobilize young voters from across the country. However, they argued that during their short time on the board, they have not yet been updated on the RNC’s efforts, if any existed, to have outreach programs directed at young voters.
