After full funding to bring Republican pundit Ann Coulter to campus was denied for a second time by Student Congress Tuesday, leaders of the College Republicans said they will likely look for speakers with smaller price tags.
Greg Steele, chairman of College Republicans, said his group has given up on funding a visit from Coulter, at least from student fees.
“We certainly cannot have the event if the University continually fails to support one of the largest student groups on campus,” Steele said in an email.
The most recent request for a $15,000 grant coupled with a $5,000 loan was denied by full Student Congress, though it had been approved by the finance committee a week before.
The request fell short by a vote of six to eight, with 13 representatives abstaining. Many representatives said they felt the request was too large.
