"The most effective government is government closest to the people"
-From the Republican Oath

Tuesday, October 16th, 2018. Well, it has finally happened. The corrupt practices of the National Democrat Party have filtered down to the local level. Did you ever notice that the DEMs never run on issues. Their issues: Taxes? Raise them; Regulations? Never enough; Government? Spend more money' Borders? Open them' Etc., etc., etc. If they run on issues they lose. So what do they do? They resort to character assassination, fear mongering, slander, on and on. And they just make stuff up. It does not have to be true, it just has to sound like it could be true. We saw it in the Justice Kavanaugh confirmation hearings. Now these techniques are filtering down to the local level.

We are not going to point out any specific examples. Just like in the Kavanaugh case it will jump right out at you. Listen to their advertising on the radio. Read what they say. Read their quotes in the newspaper. Never any discussion of the issues. Just what horrible people those Republicans are.

Well, we are going to give you an example of a Republican who deals with issues. Click the candidates link above, scroll down to Ralph Hise, and click on his website link. Then examine his positions on the issues. It is very illuminating. Just the opposite of what a Democrat does.

The General Election ballot for Rutherford County has an incredibly good slate of Republican candidates. A few days ago the Rutherford County GOP Executive Committee put in the mail almost 16,000 Rutherford County Voter Guides. If you need one, there is a link to a printable version in the menu at the top of this page. On the Guide we listed all of the Republican candidates we are supporting. We stand behind every one of those candidates and encourage you to do the same. Don't allow yourself to be distracted by the DEMs character assassination and slander. Stick to the issues. Support your Federal, State, and local GOP candidates.

Thursday, July 26, 2018. The Rutherford County Executive Committee decided to keep the Party Headquarters at 207 N. Main in Rutherfordton open through 2019 and until the 2020 Presidential Election. Normally the Committee operates Headquarters from about April 1 of an election year through the end of November after the election. This decision poses a fund raising challenge as expenses at the Main Street location run about $1,200 per month.
