About the Republican Party in Delaware
Delaware, as the first state to ratify our Constitution, established the bed rock American principles of individual freedom, the right of free expression and that any government shall treat equally every citizen regardless of race, color of skin or religious beliefs.
The Delaware Republican Party stands united with our forefathers. Today, our party is dedicated to continuing to make Delaware the very best place: to live, to work and to raise a family. To achieve these goals our candidates are committed to less government; fiscal responsibility; protection of individual rights and freedom from unnecessary government interference.
Do you believe in these basic principles? Then, get involved and join us. Together we can make Delaware a better place not just for today but for future generations.
