Welcome to the Cape May County Regular Republicans

History of the GOP – “Grand Old Party”

It began in a little schoolhouse in Ripon, Wisconsin, in 1854. A small group of dedicated abolitionists gathered to fight the expansion of slavery, and they gave birth to a Party dedicated to freedom and equal opportunity. The name “Republican” was chosen, alluding to Thomas Jefferson’s Democratic-Republican Party and conveying a commitment to the inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

The Party was formally organized in July 1854 by thousands of anti-slavery activists at a convention in Jackson, Michigan. And it was no accident that two years later, in 1856, the first Republican National Convention took place in Philadelphia, where the Constitution was written. Drawing inspiration from our Party’s history, today’s Republicans believe individuals, not government, make the best decisions; all people are entitled to equal rights; and decisions are best made close to home.

At the state level, the nation’s thirty Republican governors are making government more effective and efficient, spurring economic growth and striving to put more power in the hands of the people.

Nationally, Republicans recognize that the slow, bloated, top-down Washington bureaucracy is out-of-date in the 21st century. Our Party works to give Americans more choices—in healthcare, in education, in energy, and in the economy—and to free individuals and families from the intrusive overreach of federal bureaucrats.
The Party’s core principles of freedom and equal opportunity are as relevant today as at our founding, and they are the road map for American renewal in a new and interconnected world.


Welcome to the Cape May County GOP. I’m honored to lead a united and focused CapeGOP team into 2016 and beyond. I look forward to building and expanding on our legacy of an open and inclusive party organization. We remain committed to bringing good government to Cape May County while perpetuating the Constitutional principles of our nation’s Founders. Together we are committed to the conservative ideals of smaller government, equal opportunity and personal responsibility. All who share these values and commitments are welcome and encouraged to get involved in the CapeGOP.
