Help Our Republican Slate Challenge the Democrats!

Candidates have stepped up to run for Cook County offices, and they need your help to get on the ballot! These candidates have been slated for Countywide office, and we now have only 3 weeks to gather 5,400 petition signatures. We must gather these signatures by Sunday, June 1st.

The Democrats in Cook County County have grown complacent, thinking they own our county. We have three candidates who have stepped up to take on the Democrat machine. They need our help to get on the ballot!

Slated candidates will run with the Party’s endorsement in the November 4th General Election.

The countywide slated candidates are: Tondalaya Maria Nelson, for Clerk; Antonio Mannings, for Treasurer; and Robert Foss, for Assessor.

We may only circulate petitions until Sunday, June 1st. You can download and print the petition here. If you have any questions, please contact Aaron Del Mar at CookCountyChairman@gmail.com.

Can you help us reach our goal of 5,400 by getting at least one sheet of signatures for these candidates by the deadline of Sunday, June 1st?

If you would like to return your notarized petition or have any questions, please email CookCountyChairman@Gmail.com.

Cook County GOP Accomplishments Under Chairman Aaron Del Mar

Committeeman Support Program

As Chairman, Aaron Del Mar does not believe in a top-down approach to leading the Cook County Republican Party. He believes it is the Chairman’s responsibility to support the Township and Ward Committeemen who are elected by Republican voters to lead the Party in their communities. CookCounty is too diverse to be led in a one-size-fits-all manner.

Cook County Republican Party Announces 2014 Primary Endorsements

The Cook County Republican Party announced today their endorsements for the 2014 Primary Election.

Businessman Bruce Rauner was endorsed over his three opponents for Illinois Governor. Also endorsed were Judy Baar Topinka, Paul Schimpf, and Mike Webster, unopposed Republican candidates for Illinois Comptroller, Attorney General, and Secretary of State. No endorsements were made in the races for Illinois Treasurer and U.S. Senate as Tom Cross and Doug Truax won their respective votes but did not reach the 60% threshold required for an endorsement.

“For the first time in recent memory, Republicans in the largest county in Illinois have a strong, public voice in the Republican Primary process,” proclaimed Chairman Aaron Del Mar. “For too long Cook County has been considered Democrat territory, yet there are more Republicans here than in any other county in Illinois. It’s time their voice was heard loud and clear. This is why we held this endorsement process. The Republican Party in Cook County is growing stronger every day and we will ensure the election of a Republican Governor in 2014.”
