Former Law School Republicans (LSR) President Travis Horn (right, with Governor Jeb Bush) was elected Chair of the Alachua County Republican Executive Committee (REC) in December, the first student to hold the position in a decade. Horn’s involvement with the campus group led an increase in its level of activities and involvement, and he hopes to duplicate that on the county level. “We want to bring successes like those we experienced with our Law School Republicans into the community,” he said. Horn, 30, is a veteran whose service in the Army’s 82nd Airborne Division (1990-94) included a tour of Saudi Arabia after the Gulf War cease-fire. In 1999, Horn was a sworn delegate for George W. Bush’s “Florida Victory 2000” convention. He received his B.A. in Political Science (history-minor) from UF in 2000. He entered law school in 2002, became President of the LSR and founded/chaired “Gators For Jeb.” Governor Bush, his son George and former Florida Solicitor General Tom Warner are among speakers Horn helped bring to Gainesville. “Alachua County Republicans want to articulate and stand firm on our party’s core principles,” Horn said. “I look forward to the challenge.”
