Kerry urges collegiate action
Senator John Kerry told college students Tuesday to get involved in the presidential race because they have significant power to drive change.

Senator John Kerry encouraged college students Tuesday to reemerge as a influential political voice in America to take power away from special interests and return it to those who deserve it.

“Young people have enormous power and need to understand it, embrace it and use it,” the Massachusetts senator said in a conference call with college journalists that the TCU Daily Skiff participated in. “As young people, if you walk away from using your voice, you empower the people with money and you give them the power.”
