Sharing Really Is Caring

Looking for a way to help that doesn't involve opening your wallet, calling a bunch of strangers, or even getting off the couch?

Have we got a job for you! It takes just two steps.


First, if you haven't done so already, get connected with the Montgomery County Republican Party online.  You've already found our website.  Now go like our Facebook page, join our Facebook group, follow us on Twitter, and sign up for our email list.

Next - share!  When you share, 'like', or comment on a Facebook post  your friends can see it (if your Facebook privacy settings allow it).  On Twitter, you can re-tweet items from our timeline to your followers.  Whenever an e-mail contains something your friends might find interesting, just click on the forward button at the bottom of the message.  If you look at the bottom of this post, you'll find sharing buttons for Facebook, Twitter, and e-mail there, too.

When you share our content online, you help spread the word about Republican candidates and issues.  This helps create the name recognition so critical for candidates in 'down-ballot' races and puts positive information about Republicans in front of those who might not see it otherwise.  It's a free, quick, easy way  to influence the outcome on election day.
