The group claims to hold much of the responsibility for the "Reagan Revolution". Ronald Reagan often referred to CRA as the "Conscience of the Republican Party." Unlike some other conservative political groups, it makes no pretense at being nonpartisan; the "CRA has been working to elect Republican candidates who stand unwaveringly for Republican principles," according to their website. It is pro-life and pro-"family values" and it supports a limited-government agenda calling for lower taxes, less governmental regulation, and more personal freedom. In the 1990s it spawned a national organization based on its own efforts, the National Federation of Republican Assemblies, which now has affiliates in approximately forty states.
