he Oregon Republican Party has now released it's official platform
, numerating the issue positions agreed upon within the party. You can read the ORP Platform , and find out how to get involved in the party on the ORP website
The Preamble of the 2023 Platform reads as follows:
We, the Republican Party of Oregon, stand for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. We seek to ensure justice,
order, and domestic tranquility, as one nation under God, our Creator. Without restrictive government, as free
people, all Oregonians have the opportunity, through hard work and perseverance, to build a more prosperous
future for themselves, their families, and their communities. We believe each generation should teach, proclaim,
promote, and defend the essential civic Virtues of our founding.
We encourage all citizens to work with us to elect ethical and accountable candidates who align with our ideals.
This platform outlines our guiding principles, and our vision of the role and scope of our Constitutional Republic, the
protection of individual rights, and the responsibilities we have to ourselves, each other, and our Country. We are
committed to securing these ideals for future generations.
The ORP is also announcing an incentive program designed to engage and challenge PCPs (Precinct-Committee-Persons) to help with canvassing, door knocking, phone banking,
letter writing, voter registration drives and
community engagement events.
Precinct Committee Persons (or PCPs) are the entry-level officials of the Oregon Republican Party (ORP.) They represent the people that live within their precinct to their county Republican Party. Each PCP is a voting member of the Central Committee in their county party. You can find out how to become a PCP on the Oregon Republican Party website
The ORP says PCPs with the greatest number of verified
volunteer hours win prizes. Hours will be sent to the
ORP PCP chair at the end of each quarter by the designated county verifier.
Rewards may change from time to time. First quarter prizes are:
- Free admission to the ORP State Central Committee meeting
- A 90-minute private flight from the airport nearest to you with Brian Bishop
- $25 Gift certificates
The ORP says that the PCP who banks the most hours will select between the first two
prizes. The PCP who banks the second most hours will receive the
prize not selected by the winner. All other PCPs who have banked
at least 5 verified hours will be eligible to enter a drawing for
a $25 gift card.
"We’re thrilled to roll out the new PCP Initiative to help PCP’s engage in GOTV activities in their county and our state party", said PCP Organization Chair Jessica Davidson. "We have some wonderful prizes in store and hope you’re all excited to get to work helping get Republicans elected at every level."

In May 1856, the first Republican meeting in Oregon was held in Jackson County to nominate county officers and adopt a strong platform declaring freedom throughout the United States, and the Oregon Republican Party was officially organized in Albany just three months later.
By December of that same year, the Oregonian newspaper stated that almost every county had held a Republican convention and adopted a ‘free state platform’, in favor of the admission of Oregon to the Union as a free state.
The first nominating convention of the Oregon Republican Party was held in Salem on April 21, 1859. Delegates supported William Seward, who was in favor of Oregon’s statehood, and was noted for his strong position against slavery.
The current Chairman of the Oregon Republican Party is businessman, Justin Hwang.
