The Minneapolis City Republican Committee is dedicated to supporting candidates running for municipal offices in Minneapolis.

MCRC Mission

Minneapolis is a premier American city handicapped by a centralized, overreaching government that is stifling the freedom and prosperity of its citizens. MCRC advocates a philosophy of localized, limited government, strong wards, and active citizens. We seek to elect candidates to city office who want to open Minneapolis once again to small businesses, parent/teacher controlled schools, and to make our city affordable for families.
