The Germantown Republican Club is the oldest operating Republican Social Club in the country. We are a social club of Republicans from the Northwest. We do not endorse candidates and we do not fund campaigns. The club lives on for good times to talk politics, share food and hear speakers. All Republicans are welcome to join.
