The Chicago Republican Party represents a broad diversity of people in the city, across geographical, racial, ethnic, and economic divides. 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 nation. We believe that government has become too large and powerful. We believe that in this city, the people have been forced to serve the government, not the other way around.
