We are NOT the GOP. We are principled Republicans committed to fixing the Republican Party. We stand for the principles that Republican voters believe in and we do not give in to big government corporate cronyism or false Republicans.
About the Tennessee Republican Assembly
The Tennessee Republican Assembly (TRA) is a socially, morally, and fiscally conservative group of individuals committed to strengthening the Republican party by upholding the traditional, Republican ideals that represent the American founders’ original intent. We believe in God, family, and country. We support policies that expand the rights, liberties, and responsibilities of the individual and that reduce the size and spending of government.
Our work includes making the Republican Party stronger by registering voters, recruiting members, developing party leadership, endorsing candidates, supporting officials who share our beliefs and principles and monitoring their voting to assure that they are remaining loyal to our conservative values.
The TRA was chartered under the National Federation of Republican Assemblies (NFRA), which has a 70 year history of success as a true grassroots organization. The NFRA is our nation's oldest and largest Republican volunteer organization. President Ronald Reagan said that the Republican Assembly is,"The Conscience of the Republican Party." The NFRA is the national umbrella organization for all of the nationwide state Republican Assembly organizations.
The TRA invites and welcomes all Tennesseans to join the Republican Assembly leadership movement that values tradition and principles over politics. We understand that not all will agree with our mission or accept our invitation. In addressing this fact, President Reagan wisely counseled that, "A political party cannot be all things to all people. It must represent certain fundamental beliefs, which must not be compromised to political expediency or correctness, or simply to swell numbers.... And if there are those that cannot subscribe to these principals, then let them go their way." We are confident that the beliefs and principles espoused by the TRA are shared by the majority of Tennesseans.
