As Republicans - even going back to our founding days of fighting for individuals’ rights - we are the Party of the people. It is not just about one person making a difference, or even one group of Republicans within the Party.
We will advance Republican Party Platform issues, win elections and grow the Party, by focussing on PEOPLE WORKING TOGETHER. In order to accomplish this we need YOU to be involved, share your passion, share your message for our elected representatives, and be involved in small or large ways. YOU are a community champion who can help us promote limited government, reduce taxes, and hold our elected officials to YOU, the people they represent. Together, we can make a difference.
A community champion does not have to be a public official or visible community leader. He or she can be a concerned citizen that volunteers to improve the quality of life of the community, helps with paperwork, and events. He or she can be an inspired visionary that works hard to start and support an initiative that offers hope, promotes liberty, and encourages citizens' actions. He or she believes in, motivates, and supports others in the community who are working to make a positive difference in our community. Whatever he or she does, it is done with a commitment to making things better for everyone.
We believe in building a more informed Rockdale County while engaging and energizing our community to participate and contribute in support of Republican values and candidates.
The Rockdale County Republican Party is:
recruiting and electing qualified Republicans at all levels of government
upholding the Republican Party Platform
promoting conservative principles
- increasing voter registration and voter turnout
growing the party and developing leaders for our Party
positively, responsibly, and compassionately communicating our Republican message
raising funds to support Republican candidates.
On Monday, Indiana Governor and Vice-Presidential nominee Mike Pence will visit Georgia to rally the troops and fuel momentum for the Republican ticket.

Georgia Republican Party
The Sound of Silence
After Georgia Democratic Congressman Hank Johnson likened Jewish settlers in the West Bank to "termites," organizations like the Anti-Defamation League and the Georgia Republican Party rebuked the lawmaker while the Atlanta Jewish Times joined a host of elected officials and community leaders in questioning Johnson's commitment to the Jewish community as a whole.
Amongst those not lining up to condemn Rep. Johnson for his blatantly offensive mischaracterization of Jewish settlers is liberal moneyman and Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate, Jim Barksdale.
Over the past two weeks, Barksdale, who is "honored to have the support of Representative Hank Johnson," traveled to Philadelphia for the DNC Convention, posed for selfies with "progressive" supporters, and even challenged Johnny Isakson to a series of debates but has not found a free moment to voice his concerns with Congressman Johnson's anti-Israel rhetoric.
Outside of not wanting to sever ties with one of his strongest supporters, it is clear that Barksdale is more concerned with hiding his own questionable record on Israel than reproving Johnson's.
From protesting Israel's raid of a Hamas-backed flotilla in the streets of Ramallah to supporting pro-Palestinian organizations and leaders, it's no surprise that Jim Barksdale's shady past has "Jewish Democrats in Georgia talking."
And while Barksdale is actively trying to cover up his past transgressions by removing his name from the Interfaith Peace-Builders website, Georgia voters won't be fooled. We know better. You either support Israel or you don't. Silence is, as Barksdale once put it, "complicity."
