The Connecticut Republican Party has championed conservative values in the Constitution State for over one hundred and fifty years.
About the Connecticut GOP
The Connecticut Republican Party was founded in the 1850’s at the forefront of the growing anti-slavery movement. Republicans sought the eventual end of slavery, and the modernization of the country. Connecticut sent delegates to the first ever Republican National Convention in 1856. It was not until the second Republican National Convention, which nominated Abraham Lincoln, that the Republican Party became a political force, a force that would fundamentally change our country.
Over the past one-hundred-fifty plus years, the Republican Party in Connecticut and, across the nation, has accomplished many great things for our citizens, yet in many ways our core principles have not changed. The GOP (Grand Old Party) has always stood for freedom and prosperity for all Americans.
