Former President of College Democrats says goodbye to Democrats

While in the Democrat Party, Bell achieved national recognition as a
leader. He was elected the President of the College Democrats of
Georgia as well as the College Democrats of America. As the national
president of College Democrats, Ashley was a member of the Executive
Committee of the Democratic National Committee and later served as
chairman of the Hall County democratic party.

In 2000 Bell was the youngest delegate ever elected to a Democratic
National Convention (elected at 18, attending at 19), and in 2004 Bell
was a primetime speaker at the Democratic National Convention.

But Bell says that as he reflected on his core beliefs of less
government intrusion and smaller government, he began to realize that
he was a Republican.
