While the face of the conservative movement is often associated with nationally recognized officeholders, there is in fact a large number of young men and women working hard every day to forge the future of the movement.

Even as younger officeholders like Speaker Paul Ryan, Sen. Marco Rubio, and Gov. Bobby Jindal continue to take up the reins, Newsmax is dedicated to highlighting an even younger crop of professionals — the 30 and under set — who are working in fields such as politics, grassroots organizing, media, and more.

Gathered below are the names of 30 influential Republicans 30 and under who are making strides to bolster the values near and dear to the heart of the movement. Along with the names and descriptions of these standout individuals, Newsmax has also included links to further information, as well as each one’s public Twitter profile.

Rankings take into account each candidate’s accomplishments relative to their age, and seek to highlight emerging voices alongside established ones.

Elizabeth Esty’s seat this fall.”
