A South Side Thanksgiving

Now that the holiday season is close and people are making plans for Thanksgiving we are asking that you personally get involved and support our friend Pastor Corey Brooks of New Beginnings Church located at 66th and S. King Drive. Pastor Brooks is attempting to provide 5,000 needy families on the south side of Chicago (mostly from the Woodlawn and Englewood communities) who otherwise might go hungry on Thanksgiving Day.  I am reaching out to you for financial assistance to make this possible. At a time when many people are focused on giving thanks for the bounty in their lives, others are feeling the pain of need.

New Chicago GOP Headquarters

The Chicago GOP has moved to a new location in Lincoln Park just minutes from the Fullerton Red Line stop. We are very excited and working hard to get Republicans from across the city on the ballot. Any and all donations in the form of furniture and/or office supplies is greatly appreciated. So stop by and say hello, our doors are open to all Republicans!

Emergency: we have 24 hours to give away tickets to the presidential debate

Just now, the Chicago GOP managed to acquire a pair of tickets to the first presidential debate in Cleveland next week. Here's the problem: for security reasons, they need to have the names of the attendees no later than close of business tomorrow, Friday.

So we're running an emergency, 24-hour raffle to give away the pair of tickets. Make a donation to the Chicago GOP of $10 or more no later than noon tomorrow, Friday, and we'll put your name on the list to win.

While millions watch on TV, you'll be right there in the audience. Learn the truth from Ted Cruz. Hear the solution from Jeb Bush. Be unintimidated with Scott Walker. Share the dream with Marco Rubio. Bask in the presence of Donald Trump.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Cleveland isn't far away, and the first debate is always the biggest, the most important, and the most-watched of all the debates. You'll be there for the history-making turn of phrase, be it glorious or a gaffe. "Are you better off than you were four years ago?" "Well, there you go again." "You're no Jack Kennedy." "Who am I? Why am I here?" "I have binders full of women".

Donate to a good cause, and go to a great debate. And be sure to enter to win no later than noon tomorrow.

Chris Cleveland

P.S. Be sure to enter your phone number so we can call you if you win.

P.P.S. You won't have a problem getting a hotel room; there are some reserved rooms nearby.

2015 Summer Internship Application

The Chicago Republican Party is currently accepting applications for the 2015 Summer Internship Program. What ties us together is the core belief that the people can govern themselves. It is the same belief that drew the founders to create this great nation. We believe that government has become far too large and inefficient while taxpayers are routinely brought to bear the cost of its failures. If you share our values of individualism and personal responsibility, we would like to hear from you.

The Chicago Republican Party Internship Program will provide students and recent graduates with a hands-on learning experience. Each intern will participate in the political process and earn valuable experience. In addition, those who complete the required hours will receive a letter of recommendation from Chairman Chris Cleveland and may also earn school credit*.
