The Chicago Republican Party is Recruiting 2016 Candidates!

We are actively seeking individuals throughout the city and near suburbs to run for the state legislature. We want strong, professional, persuasive Republicans to take the lead in their community and run for office.

If you get through our vetting process you will receive training and support. We'll help you get on the ballot and help you win in November.

It's not easy for a Republican to win in Chicago, but it's possible, and we will be there with you every step of the way.

Why run?

  • Because voters need a choice.

  • Because you will become well-known in your community.

  • Because you will join a group of friends who think like you.

  • Because *you might win*.

 Interested? Send an email to with the following information:

  1. Your name.

  2. Your address and phone number.

  3. A brief statement on why you believe you would be a good candidate.

After we receive it, we’ll send you a questionnaire and you’ll be on your way!
