Jefferson Republican Party


Jefferson Republican Party

The Jefferson Republican Party is a minor political party in the United States.

The JRP was organized in 2006 by former members of the Constitution Party and claims ideological descent from the original Democratic-Republican Party founded by Thomas Jefferson and James Madison in 1792. While the party does not have an official party platform it attempts to follow the statements issued by Thomas Jefferson in January 1799 and is supportive of a smaller role for the federal government, of States' rights issues and is largely anti-war, calling for limited intervention in foreign matters. The Jefferson Republican Party has no direct affiliation with the far larger U.S. Republican Party. Jefferson Republican Party member Carl Whitaker ran as a candidate in the Tennessee gubernatorial election, 2006 and the party endorsed Roy Moore as a write-in candidate for governor in the 2006 Alabama general election. The party has endorsed Chuck Baldwin for the 2008 presidential election.
