Jimmy Sengenberger is the host of The Jimmy Sengenberger Show on Denver’s News/Talk 710 KNUS and has guest-hosted numerous times on Denver’s KNUS and KLZ 560, as well as on Northern Colorado’s 1310 KFKA.

He graduated Summa Cum Laude from Regis University with a BA in Politics.

Why is it important that at this particular point in time, right-of-center youth become involved publicly, whether in politics, media, their communities, or in other capacities?

There is a presumption among the elites – particularly those in media and in academia – that young people are in lockstep with the left. This is especially pronounced in the “Age of Obama.” As a college freshman in 2008, I distinctly remember the flurry of energy and enthusiasm for Obama, a fiery passion which has – thankfully – since tempered. It is absolutely crucial, at this moment, that right-of-center youth become involved publicly in building up a new generation of conservative leaders who will usher in a new age of freedom and opportunity for America. If we lose this generational battle of ideas now, when minds are formed and destinies are shaped, then we will ultimately lose the war, finding that it is too late to resurge and restore the principles and foundations of liberty.

What must elected officials and others in positions of leadership do to make a right-of-center message resonate with the Millennial generation?

The key to an effective message that resonates with the Millennial generation lies in personalization, articulating politics in a way that connects to young people and is relevant to their lives.  Relevancy is crucial to “bringing it home,” rather than perpetuating the myth that politics is distant to young people and does not affect them. Personalization requires a direct, emotional appeal, one which recognizes that Millennials are very much in-tune with and concerned about liberal notions of “social justice” that are so much easier to connect with on a responsive level. We must recognize that reaching young people requires a certain emotional sensibility that conservatives — ever-eager to focus on facts and on principles — are not used to and, consequently, exert a much stronger emphasis on appealing to the heart.

Where would you like to see the conservative movement in 10 years — and how can it get there?

In 10 years I would like to see a conservative movement that is a far more recognizable and potent force than it is today, one which has a broad and far-reaching presence in both public policy and on college campuses. With the widespread influence conservatives currently have in governorships and state legislatures throughout the country, as well as a strong and diverse field of conservative presidential candidates, the movement is uniquely positioned to usher in a wave of conservative reforms that will reaffirm our principles and validate solutions like we have not yet seen. This will require strong and steady leaders and activists who are willing to stay the course and remain firm in the face of political correctness and liberal adversity. We cannot and must not allow ourselves to bow to the pressure of short-term politics and purely-emotional temptations, and we must support center-right youth groups and organizations across the country by emboldening them to stand firm for what they know in their hearts is right.
