The oldest Republican Women's club on record was founded in Salt Lake City in the early 1870's. The National Federation of Republican Women was chartered in 1938 in Chicago, Illinois. With Dwight Eisenhower and Congressman Jonas of NC
 running successful campaigns in 1952 the North Carolina Republican Women's club was born. In 1953, the NC club joined with the NFRW to
become the North Carolina Federation of
Republican Women. There were 14 clubs in
the newly chartered NCFRW.
One of those clubs was created when ten
 women joined together to form the Wake
County Republican Women's Club. The three
 women who chartered the Wake County Club were: Helen Lehew, Reva Rothrock, and Beatrice Summers.

The Objectives of this organization are:

To promote and inform the electorate through political education and activity;

To increase the effectiveness of women in the cases of good government, through active political participation;

To foster loyalty to the Republican Party and to promote its principles and candidates in all elections, including non- partisan elections;

To build a two-party system and increase membership in the Republican Party in Wake County, and

To work for the election of the Republican Party's nominees

I am a Republican Because...

I BELIEVE the strength of our nation lies with the individual and that each person’s dignity, freedom, ability and responsibility must be honored.

I BELIEVE in equal rights, equal justice and equal opportunity for all, regardless of race, creed, sex, age or disability.

I BELIEVE free enterprise and encouraging individual initiative have brought this nation opportunity, economic growth and prosperity.

I BELIEVE government must practice fiscal responsibility and allow individuals to keep more of the money they earn.

I BELIEVE the proper role of government is to provide for the people only those critical functions that cannot be performedby individuals or private organizations, and that the best government is that which governs least.

I BELIEVE the most effective, responsible and responsive government is government closest to the people.

I BELIEVE Americans must retain the principles that have made us strong while developing new
and innovative ideas to meet the challenges of changing times.

I BELIEVE Americans value and should preserve our national strength and pride while working to extend peace, freedom and human rights throughout the world.

FINALLY, I believe the Republican Party is the best vehicle for translating these ideals into
 positive and successful principles of government.
