Young Conservatives was founded by Josh Riddle and David Rufful at Dartmouth College in 2009.
As freshmen roommates at Dartmouth College in May 2009, Josh and David began building political news media websites while also playing college basketball and editing for the preeminent college newspaper, The Dartmouth Review. Prior to Dartmouth, Josh and David both studied at Northfield Mount Hermon School in Massachusetts.
Without any funding or outside support, Josh and David have built several of the largest websites in the world, which have been ranked among the Top 100 Desktop sites and Top 75 Mobile sites in the US. The two have appeared on Real Time with Bill Maher, Fox & Friends, Huckabee, VH1’s Best Week Ever, The Huffington Post, Playboy Magazine, The O’Reilly Factor, Daily Kos, Power Line Blog, MTV and many other nationally syndicated radio stations, major web outlets, and national television programs.
Josh and David maintain exclusive ownership and control of the website. Young Conservatives has been profitable throughout its entire history.
