Murphy Elected Young Republican National Committeeman by clintmurphy

Clint Murphy, a Savannah REALTOR and long time supporter of the Republican Party was recently elected as the Georgia Young Republican National Committeeman in a special election.

Murphy has been involved for a number of years in the Republican Party in Georgia, as well as in Washington, DC and in Iowa.  Murphy got his first taste of politics in 1990 as a young volunteer for Johnny Isakson in his campaign for Governor.  Murphy credits that as being the spark that started his interest in getting involved with Republican politics. 

Murphy’s first job out of college was on the staff of the late US Senator Paul D. Coverdell.  He went on to work as a fundraiser at the National Republican Congressional Committee, serve in the Bush Administration, run a Congressional Campaign, and work in Iowa during the 2002 elections. 

In 2003, Murphy returned to Savannah to begin his career in real estate.  When Johnny Isakson announced for the Senate seat, Murphy signed up to co-chair his campaign in Savannah.  Murphy was an early supporter of Casey Cagle in his campaign to become the first Republican elected to the office of Lt. Governor and helped lead the campaign on the coast. 

Presently, Clint Murphy is on the Georgia Advisory Committee for John McCain for President and serves as Vice Chairman of the Savannah Young Republicans.  Murphy serves as Chairman of the Chatham County Urban Transportation Citizens Advisory Committee and in 2007 ran unsuccessfully for the Savannah City Council. 

In his spare time, Clint likes to bike and is involved with the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life and the American Diabetes Association’s Kiss a Pig competition.
