Welcome to our website
Welcome to the website of the Houston County Republican Party! Houston County, located in Middle Goergia in the 8th Congressional District, is an over 100,000+ population making us one of the largest counties south of Metro Atlanta. We have a great group of members, old and new! Some of our core members were activists whose time goes back to before Republicans were a "thing" in Georgia. They stuck it out and helped to make the HCGOP the group that it is today. Through its ups and downs the HCGOP has remained strong...just like our country has! Through its ups and downs America has remained strong!
We are living in unprecedented times right now. Last year, 2020 started out seemingly normal but turned out to be anything BUT normal. While it is difficult for us to believe and accept what happened with the Presidential and Senatorial elections rest assured it wasn't from a lack of trying. Amazing efforts were put into these elections like never before! Each event held brought new faces - people from all walks of life, people who have never voted before, people who have never been involved in politics. The encouraging part is that we are not allowing the attempted division the Democrats are trying to bring about over race, gender, sexual orientation, and radical politics to stop us. If there is anything that the 2020 election has shown us is that we are uniting to send a message that political correctness, identity politics, and radical policies have no place in American society.
If you believe in the core principles of the Republican Party and do not want to see history repeat itself it is imperative trhat you get involved. We need to defeat the radical progressivisim that has gained a choke-hold on our nation and it is going to take all of us to do so. Click the "Join" button at the top of the page. Houston County needs you! Georgia needs you! America needs you! Join us! Thanks for stopping by!
