OUR REPUBLICAN PRINCIPLES
The Republican Party believes in limited government, personal liberty, a strong national defense, a world-class education system, and energy independence, among other things. We believe each individual American, not their government, knows what is best for them and should have the freedom and ability to make their own choices.
The Republican Party, also known by our nickname - the Grand Old Party, has a rich history dating back to the mid-1800's. Established as an anti-slavery party, the GOP rose to prominence when our Presidential nominee, Abraham Lincoln, was elected President of the United States in 1860.
