If for no other reason, Republicans can thank Bill Clinton’s White House affair for encouraging then-teenager Adam Piper to become interested in politics.

Piper first became involved with politics as a high school freshman in 1999 in the wake of the Monica Lewinsky scandal and President Clinton’s subsequent impeachment. Since then, Piper has worked on campaigns at every level: from state legislative races to presidential races throughout the past decade.

At the age of 28, Piper has now risen to the position of Vice Chairman of the South Carolina Republican Party and works as the public affairs director for the state’s Attorney General, Alan McCrory Wilson. Before accepting a position with Wilson, Piper served as the Carolina states’ political director for former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman’s presidential campaign.

“It is easy, regardless of your age to have an impact and affect the circumstances,” said Piper, who won the Teen Age Republicans’ Lee Atwater Award in 2002 for his outstanding contributions to the party.

“Working hard and just showing up is 90 percent of the ballgame,” Piper admits.

“Actions speak louder than words. It’s one thing to Tweet, Facebook and talk. It’s another to mobilize, volunteer and actually get out the vote.”

Young Americans don’t have to agree on everything, Piper said, but they should work toward a more limited government and the preservation of the American Dream, which he says is being “stifled” by the nation’s $15 trillion national debt.

“If we don’t stand up as a generation, it’s only going to get worse,” he said.
