|Arlington County Republican Committee Charles Hokanson, Chairman|
Arlington's Republican Party
Thank you for visiting! We appreciate our volunteers and voters from 2012. Please join us for 2013, as we work to elect Republicans in Virgnia, and to build a stronger two-party system here in Arlington.
County Board: Wavro nominated for 2012 race
Republican activist Matt Wavro is the GOP nominee for the County Board in the November election. Since he was the only candidate to file, the party canvass previously scheduled for June 2 has been canceled.
Visit the Wavro campaign at www.Wavro2012.com, and sign up to volunteer. We encourage you to follow news coverage of this year's County Board race. Matt spoke at our County Committee meeting on May 23 (see news article).
Get involved: Sign up for County Committee
More than 250 Arlington Republicans signed up as members of the County Committee for 2012-14, or as delegates to the 8th District and State GOP Conventions (see reorganization details). Thanks to all who filed!
There are still seats available on the Committee, and we welcome new members. There are also many volunteer opportunties to support the GOP ticket this year. Sign up today and let us know how you'd like to help.
Campaign 2012: Contests for President and Senate heat up
President: After Republican contests in more than 40 states, Mitt Romney is our presumptive nominee for President. Romney won the Virginia primary on March 6 (part of "Super Tuesday"), and clinched the nomination in May. Virginia promises to be a hotly-contested swing state this fall. See more on the Presidential race.
U.S. Senate: Former Gov. George Allen won the Republican primary Senator on June 12, with an impressive 65% of the vote. This will be a key race for control of the U.S. Senate See more on the Senate race.
House: Republican Patrick Murray is our nominee, since no othoer candidate filed. Discredited incumbent Democrat Jim Moran won his party's primary on June 12. See more on the Congressional race.
Thank you, primary voters & volunteers!
More than 7600 Arlington Republicans came out to vote in the Virginia Presidential primary on March 6. Congratulations to Mitt Romney, who carried Arlington with 65% of the vote. See detailed election results.
Dozens of GOP volunteers greeted voters at polls, with information on County Board candidate Mark Kelly and the March 27 special election. Many also collected signatures for Congressional candidate Patrick Murray.
Campaign 2011: Election recap
Republicans picked up two State Senate seats in the hard-fought legislative elections of 2011 - enough to take majority control (thanks to the Lt. Governor's tie-breaking vote). Republicans in the House of Delegates added 6 seats to their majority. See news coverage.
