Dear Republicans and visitors,
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 or donating to the DC GOP in support of our Republican candidates for local and national office in the 2020 elections.
As you may know, the DC Republican Party is America’s only urban state party and we have three elected representatives on the Republican National Committee (RNC). In fact, we will send 19 Delegates and 16 Alternate Delegates to the 2020 Republican National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina. Most importantly, we are active in municipal affairs. While this is a terrific time to be a Republican, I am most enthusiastic about our prospects for winning local elections. In November 2016 we had our most successful local election cycle in 12 years. In the At-Large, DC Council race, Republican nominee Carolina Celnik outperformed all Republican candidates (except for one) in the last twelve years. Ashley Carter became the first Republican ever elected to the DC State Board of Education At-Large seat and the 2nd Republican ever to serve on that Board.
If you are a registered Republican interested in running for office in the 2020 elections let’s please talk about it. While general election day is November 3, 2020 - and the primary for partisan offices is June 2, 2020 - much preparation is needed to make a successful run for public office. For the 2020 primary ballot we will elect Ward Chairs in all 8 Wards. We will also elect DC Council members for the At-Large and Wards 2, 4, 7, and 8 seats. For the 2020 general election ballot we will elect Advisory Neighborhood Commissioners (ANC) (City-wide and non-partisan) as well as DC State Board of Education for the At-Large and Wards 2, 4, 7, and 8.
During the upcoming election cycle we will hold call banks at the DC GOP headquarters and our candidates will go door-to-door to take their campaigns directly to the voters. Again, please consider donating your time or financial support to our Republican candidates.
--José Cunningham, Chairman, DC Republican Party
