SD49 Minnesota GOP

The Republican party was united in 1854 by the promise to abolish slavery. We stand for freedom, prosperity, and opportunity. Today, as those principles come under attack from the left, we are engaged in a national effort to fight for our agenda that worked in the Trump administration and take our message to every American. We will grow the party, promote election integrity, and elect Republicans up and down the ballot. The principles of the Republican Party recognize the God-given liberties while promoting opportunity for every American.
