I Want to Run for Office

The beauty of America is that its future rests in the hands of the people. That said, if those same people don’t step up to guide America in the right direction, our country will continue to be under attack from those who wish to see it fail. If not you, who will oust the Democrats from their roost? If not you, who will fight to make America great again? If not you, who will work to ensure this country remains intact for our children and their children?

It has to be you.

If you’ve been sitting around getting more and more frustrated that the country is going in the wrong direction, ask yourself what you’ve done to help. You are not powerless. It’s easy to pass the buck to someone else and then blame them when they fail. But the RPKC is ready and willing to support those who volunteer to pick up the torch themselves. Contact us right away if you’re considering a run for office, even if you’re not sure what to run for or how to start.

Stategy + Dedication = Victory


The REDKENO Project is the RPKC’s initiative to get as many trustworthy conservatives elected to office as possible. To pursue that goal more effectively, we offer assistance to candidates at the county and municipal level with financial support and guidance through the entire process. Here are just a few:

  • Guidance with paperwork and filing for candidacy
  • Volunteers for nomination signature gathering, door knocking, and sign placement
  • Strategic campaign planning assistance
  • Literature copywriting and layout design
  • Yard sign design
  • Feature on the RPKC website
  • Invited to Pints and Politics events to talk with and answer questions from constituents
  • Targeted door knocking lists
  • Robocall and text strategies

Candidate support from the RPKC is dependent on a vote from the RPKC Executive Board.


One of the most significant ways the RPKC can support Republican candidates for office is through endorsement. With an endorsement from the RPKC, you’ll not only have the support of the Executive Board, but also from many voters who rely on endorsement for guidance. There are many Republican voters who wait for endorsement before deciding on a candidate, which can give your campaign a huge boost.

How do I get endorsed?
For each election, candidates submit an endorsement application to the Executive Board. Candidates are also welcome to join an Executive Board meeting to speak directly to the Board as a guest. The Endorsement Committee then researches and discusses all the candidates who have applied and makes their recommendations to the Board. The Executive Board then votes on whether or not they will endorse, and if so, which candidates.

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.  The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

Theodore Roosevelt
