Please send us an email if you are able to help with the picnic. 

We have invited our candidates to this event.  It promises to be a fun time!

So let's make this picnic a great one!  Bring your family and invite a neighbor who has had enough of this current administration.  We have a plan and hope for a better future and would love to welcome new friends and share our ideas.

See you then!

We Need a Victory


We are fortunate that the Republican Party, in a gesture of confidence in our candidates, has opened this Victory Office to support our senate district leading up to the August 12 primary and the November 4 general election. The principal task of the staff and volunteers in the office will be to identify the party affiliation of voters in our area and get Republicans and others who lean our way to the polls on election day.


Any amount of time you have to share is most welcome.  

EVERY Wednesday night is designated SD49 night,

but the office is open Monday through Saturday any time from 10 a.m. to 9 a.m.  

The office is at 1401 W. 94th Street, Bloomington.

Phone number is 952-807-5517.

Southwest Light Rail (SWLRT) - Info and Action

At our last dinner meeting, we had a great presentation from Donna Azarian about the SWLRT project. 

The cost of this project has already increased from $1.24B to $1.82B and will cost about $15.03 per ride (subsidized by taxpayers).  Read about safety and reliability, results from the Hiawatha line (lessons learned),  the future financial burden on Minnesotans, and more at the links below.

Here are links to her presentation ...  and to her suggested action items.

2014 Is a New Year and Another Chance to Give

pcr On July 1, 2013 the Political Refund Program in Minnesota was reinstated.  You can again contribute up to $50 per individual and $100 per couple and apply for a COMPLETE refund of these dollars from the MN Dept of Revenue.  The new calendar year on January 1st means you can send in your donation again and GET ALL OF YOUR MONEY BACK!

We need to take our campaigns to the next level.  We CAN win back our two house seats.  We in Senate tion District 49 are working towards that goal, and we need your help.  We are debt-free, so any donations are directly applied to getting our local Republican candidates elected. 

Please consider at least a minimum contribution of $50.  Through the PCR program, you can get every dollar refunded.  Of course, a bigger donation of $250 or $100 will make an even bigger impact!  You can send your contribution in the mail, or click the online contribution button above.  Upon receiving a contribution, SD49 Republicans will mail you a rbceipt of your donation, and the PCR refund application. You can apply and receive your refund within a few weeks.
