Welcome to the Republican Party of Dane County!  


"There is no horizontal stratification of society in this country like the rocks in the earth, that hold one class down below forevermore, and let another come to the surface to stay there forever. Our stratification is like the ocean, where every individual drop is free to move, and where from the sternest depths of the mighty deep any drop may come up to glitter on the highest wave that rolls.”

James A. Garfield

Our mission is to influence the politics of Dane County by community involvement, informing friends and neighbors of our position on issues and by assisting our communities through selfless acts of charity.  

We are Republicans

We are grandparents, parents, and young adults.  We are homemakers, businesspeople, retirees, and students.  We are life-long Wisconsinites, transplants, and immigrants from afar.  We are a diverse group but we all believe in the same, simple principles - Life.  Liberty.  Opportunity.

We also like to have fun with monthly ‘Pints & Politics’, a family summer picnic, a formal Lincoln Day Dinner, and many other events through out the year!

    Back in July, the Republican Party of Dane County clearly stated our support for new legislation emerging in the Wisconsin Legislature to protect life and further ban the practice of selling aborted babies for profit (“GOP is looking out for the ‘little guy’”).  Planned Parenthood has been harvesting organs since the early 1990’s when President Clinton authorized the use of fetal tissue in biomedical research.  It has grown into a billion dollar industry and Planned Parenthood was exposed when they were caught on video haggling over the price for parts of aborted babies.

    Lincoln Day Dinner 2016

    Whether you’ve supported conservative candidates in the past or just recently getting involved, this coming year is absolutely critical.  The 2016 elections will be very decisive for our country and what we do in Wisconsin will make a difference – whether it’s helping re-elect Senator Johnson or delivering our electoral votes to the next Republican President. 

    You can help by joining us at our 2016 Lincoln-Reagan Day Dinner.  It will be a celebration of Presidents Lincoln and Reagan and their remarkable lives and legacies.  You’ll enjoy a special dinner and cocktails along with the chance to win exciting raffle prizes and rub elbows with like-minded folks.  We’ll also have a great line up of speakers, especially in this important election year.

    Gold & Platinum Members - Please RSVP to HQ@DaneGOP.org if you're planning on attending.
