Dear Republican:

Welcome to the DC Republican Party’s official website. I am both proud and excited to lead the District of Columbia’s GOP and I hope you will join us! Please consider volunteering, donating or running for local office in the 2016 elections.


As you may know, the DC Republican Party is America’s only urban state party with three elected representatives on the Republican National Committee (RNC). In fact, we will send 19 Delegates and 16 Alternate Delegates to the 2016 Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio.  On March 12, 2016, and in advance of the RNC Convention, we will hold our own Convention here in DC to elect Presidential Candidates, Delegates and Alternate Delegates.  I hope you will consider running for Delegate or supporting a Presidential Candidate.  Find out more by clicking here.

This is a terrific time to be a Republican in the United States, however I am most excited about our prospects for winning local elections. Please mark your calendar for June 14, 2016, when we will have our state primary election for local offices. Republican Ward Chairs from all eight wards, and candidates for At-Large, as well as Wards 2, 4, 7 and 8 on the DC Council will be on the ballot. We will announce candidates for a number of offices in the coming months. Candidates for Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC), DC State Board of Education, and DC Council will all be on the ballot on General Election Day, November 8, 2016. If you are interested in running for any of these positions, please contact us as soon as possible.

Whether you donate, volunteer, run for office or do all three, we hope you will get involved. Whether you are a multi-generation native Washingtonian, or if you only recently moved here, the DC GOP is your chance to make our city a better place to live.
