Grand Old Partisan commemorates the first convention of the Wisconsin Republican Party. It occurred just a week after the GOP’s state kickoff Under the Oaks in Michigan. Anti-slavery newspaper editors who called for this meeting had selected the anniversary of the Northwest Ordinance of 1787, which banned slavery from the region.
Most residents of Wisconsin opposed the Kansas-Nebraska Act, enacted by Democrats and their allies. This vile law extended slavery into the western territories. Friends of freedom knew they had to unite politically if the Democratic Party were to be stopped from destroying the country.
On the morning of July 13, 1854, nearly four thousand people gathered in the park by the capitol building in Madison. . . .

We’ve laid the groundwork, and now is time to take action. Join us at the 2014 State Convention in Milwaukee from May 2-4, 2014, and let’s keep moving Wisconsin forward.

RPW STATE CONVENTION from Fri. May 2 to Sun. May 4 in Milwaukee
State Convention is a time to show the strength of our Party – and the momentum we have going into November. The Party is unified and focused on re-electing Scott Walker, Rebecca Kleefisch, and our Republican majorities.
RPW is now 16 offices strong – as we’ve said all along, we believe it is our grassroots movement that will be critical to victory. This year, we have unprecedented programs in place that are registering new voters, identifying supporters, and building the systems needed to win that will ultimately turn out support on Election Day for Republicans.
Convention is a vital time for discussion between legislators, activists and volunteers – and truly will set the course for victory in November.
During the last three years, Republicans have experienced a lot in Wisconsin. We fought hard to keep Governor Walker, Lieutenant Governor Kleefisch, and our Republican leaders in office, and to protect the reforms that saved our state.
We made the tough, but prudent, decisions necessary to balance the budget and create a government that works for the taxpayers, not against them.
The great news is that the voters of Wisconsin reaffirmed the direction they wanted to take the state in 2012, we have now been able to invest in our priorities – lower taxes, more jobs, a balanced budget, and a greater opportunity for all of Wisconsin.
Now, jobs are coming back, we have a budget surplus, the tax burden is down, and most importantly our economy is growing. Wisconsin is back on, and we’re moving forward.
Republican accomplishments include:
* With Governor Scott Walker, Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch, and a Republican majority in both the State Senate and State Assembly, we are truly able to invest in the state’s priorities and set a direction for the state to move forward
* Eliminating a $3.6 billion budget deficit without tax increases, and a budget surplus that has allowed investment in the state’s priorities
* Over $3 billion in savings, and reforms that are working for the taxpayer, not for bigger government
* Over $2 billion in tax relief, through property tax and income tax cuts, and a tax withholdings plan that is saving the typical Wisconsin family $520 this year alone
* A lower tax burden for middle-class families and job creators, and employer confidence now sits at 95%, up over 80 points since Walker and Republicans have taken in office
* Over 100,000 new jobs and over 17,000 new startups
* Unemployment is now at 5.9%, lower than the national average and the lowest in the state in 5 years
* A hold on property taxes three years in a row; after a 27% increase in the previous 10 years, Wisconsin’s property taxes are lower in 2014 than they were in 2010
* Four years ago, the debate in Madison revolved around the size of tax hikes, but now we’re discussing tax cuts and government reform
We’ve accomplished so much – but we believe the best is yet to come. We’ve laid the groundwork, and now is the time for us to take action. It is our grassroots movement that will pave the way to victory in November.
at the Wauwatosa Victory Center at 2825 N. Mayfair Road. Suite 107
The event begins at 9:30am for some instruction and then we will be going out and doing targeted door knocks for about an hour to an hour and a half. Then we will return to the office for debriefing and snacks.
It is going to very simple for everyone, even if you have never done this before. We are sending out people in teams, pairing the new people with veterans. There are a few short questions to ask to identify potential Walker supporters.
Please let us know you are coming so we can put teams together. Call James Finley, Field Office Director, at 608-333-5589 or Bill Berdan at 414-507-9443.
The Republican Party of Wisconsin is hard at work; however, it needs your assistance. Election Day will be here sooner than we think, and a strong state party is the bedrock of a significant victory in November.
The Party must open 7 additional field offices immediately, and they need your help to meet their April 1st deadline. These offices are central to our Party’s efforts and enable them to register new voters, identify supporters and drive turnout on Election Day. Their hard work at these field offices in key parts of our great State will lead Governor Walker and other Republican candidates to victories in November. We need to be strong and organized in order to win. That’s why I’m asking you to help them today.
You can help Governor Walker and other Republican candidates by contributing to the Party so that it can meet its fundraising goal and quickly open these field offices. Click here to make a difference.
Thank you for continuing to believe in our Party during this critical time. With your assistance, we can move our Party forward to victory in November.

RPW’s Milwaukee Field Office will be hosting a Community Captains Training Seminar on Saturday, March 1. Whether you’re a current Community Captain or looking to become involved for the first time, it will be an informative event and is ultimately going to make the difference in Governor Walker’s election, as well as local, state, and federal elections in the future.
The liberals have pledged a staggering amount of money against Governor Walker, and not just for the airwaves. Millions of dollars are being put toward getting their boots on the ground here in our state, and we just can’t afford to sit idle while Democrats are fighting to take us back to billion dollar budget deficits and high unemployment.
Please join us to learn how you can take a grassroots approach to making a difference in your community, your state, and your country.
When: Saturday, March 1. 2:00 PM-3:30 PM
Where: Milwaukee Field Office. 311 W Silver Spring Dr, Milwaukee, WI 53217
To RSVP, or if you have any questions or concerns, please contact Phil Curry, Milwaukee Field Director, at pcurry AT wisgop.info
from 9am - 9pm
Where: Milwaukee Field Office. 311 W Silver Spring Dr, Glendale, WI 53217
We will have food and drinks for the volunteers, and will be making a big push to speak with voters on the phones.
This will be a great opportunity for groups of Republicans to try RPW’s new door-to-door application and make a difference for Governor Walker in their neighborhoods.
