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.

    Pints & Politics - December 2015

    Join us for Pints & Politics in December with our guest speaker Robert Hall.  He will be speaking on Islam and Sharia Law.

    Robert Hall Bio

    He was first elected in 1972, the year he graduated from U-Mass, by a margin of nine votes out of over 60,000 cast. He was the first Republican elected in what was then the Third Worcester District since 1938. The district comprised the cities of Fitchburg, Leominster and Gardner, and ten area towns. Hall lived in Lunenburg, MA when elected, later moving to Fitchburg.

    Hall was re-elected in 1974 by a margin of 10,000 votes, carrying every city and town in the heavily Democratic district. In 1976, he was nominated by both parties, winning the Democratic primary on write-in votes against a Leominster City Councilor. He was unopposed in 1978, and easily won reelection in 1980, winning 78% of the vote against a Democrat from Gardner. Hall was appointed Assistant Minority Whip in 1978 and Minority Whip in 1980. Hall worked with members of both parties, and over 60 pieces of legislation he sponsored became law. He retired undefeated in 1982.
