As Hillary Clinton stumps at Dartmouth, College Democrats no-shows, College Republicans turned away

‘I did not see any College Democrats there’

HANOVER, N.H. – A recent Hillary Clinton campaign stop at Dartmouth College saw College Republicans turned away from standing near the Democratic presidential candidate and College Democrats apparent no-shows at the event.

The Ivy League college, located in New Hampshire, offers a well-attended summer school session, which is required for sophomores – yet Dartmouth College Democrats’ student leaders currently attending class there were nowhere in sight at Clinton’s campaign stop Friday.

“I did not see any College Democrats there,” student Charles Springer, a member of the Dartmouth College Republicans, told The College Fix on Saturday. “I had spoken with a couple College Democrats on the day before the event … and they all said that they were not going to the Hillary event … as she was not progressive enough for them and they did not like her as a candidate or as a person.”

Dartmouth College Democrats’ President Spencer Blair, who did not attend, responded to an email from The College Fix by saying he did not “have any relevant comment to make.”

The Dartmouth College Democrats in late May hosted a Clinton competitor – presidential candidate Martin O’Malley – praising him on Facebook for being a “progressive” candidate.

As for Friday afternoon’s event, oddly enough, the rally for Hillary Clinton had a better showing from the Dartmouth College Republicans. However, a staffer for the Clinton camp refused to allow College Republicans to stand near her, the group’s members told The Fix.

Shortly before Mrs. Clinton spoke, Clinton campaign staffers began to draw students and families from a corner of the crowd and place them on the stage, flanking the podium.

As Springer and Michelle Knesbach, both Dartmouth College Republicans, were about to pass through the hole in the rope and proceed toward the stage, a staffer stopped them. Springer recalled that the staffer said: “You guys are College Republicans, yeah?” When Knesbach replied in the affirmative, the staffer said, “Yeah, you guys can’t come on stage.”
