Current elected officials[edit]

The New Hampshire Republican Party holds a majority in the New Hampshire Senate and is in the minority in the New Hampshire House of Representatives. Republicans hold one of the state's U.S. Senate seats and neither of the state's two U.S. House seats.

The Republican Party of New Hampshire derives its platform from their preamble: "We, New Hampshire Republicans, are united by our belief in God, individual liberty, personal responsibility, limited government, limited spending, limited taxes, economic opportunity, homeland security, compassion for the truly needy, and our confidence in the strength of families, place of worship, communities, and volunteerism."[1]

New Hampshire is proudly the birthplace of the Republican Party, or "The Grand Old Party", which was established in Exeter on October 12, 1853.[1]

The New Hampshire Republican Party sets its ideology on a set of main goals or principles, including protecting the fundamental rights of the people enhancing their freedom, promotion of limited government and citizen accountability, electing candidates upholding the moral standards of the party in office, and abiding by the constitutions of the United States and of New Hampshire.[1]
