Forums featuring Republican Primary Election CandidatesVote GOP

The 2020 General Primary Election will be held on Tuesday, March 17.  In all, there are 32 Republicans seeking 27 public offices on Tazewell County ballots.  18 of those Republicans, including President Donald J. Trump and Rep. Darin LaHood, are running uncontested in the primaries.  In Tazewell County, primaries are crucial since only 10 Democrats will challenge the 27 Republican primary winners in the November 3 general election.

Because primaries are so crucial, 2 candidate forums are being held in Tazewell County featuring Republican candidates in the contested primary races.

Both forums are open to the public with no cost of admission.

We hope to see you at both forums.  "Politics is too important to be left for someone else."   (Senator Everett McKinley Dirksen)

Our Headquarters has Moved


The Headquarters for Tazewell County Republicans is now in Tremont.

After many years at our former location on Court Street in Pekin, we've relocated to a space that allows us more flexibility, has more parking and saves money.

This location is also more centrally located in the county.

We are still arranging the furniture, but will be fully functional before the March primary elections.

2019 Veteran of the Year

The 2019 Tazewell County Republicans' Veterans Appreciation Breakfast featured a keynote speech by Gene Neeley, a WWII Vet and founder of Peoria Honor Flight. 

Tazewell County Republicans awarded Veteran of the Year to two individuals, thanks to the quality of the nominations received who met the qualifications of residing in Tazewell County; served and was honorably discharged from a branch of the U.S. military; and is consistently active in our community by involving him or herself in causes or actions that give back and/or in some way, makes a difference in the lives of those in our community.

Clare Christensen served with the National Guard during the Korean Conflict.  Following his military service, Clare continued service to his country with the American Legion, Boy Scouts, Delevan Ambulance Service, Delavan Fire Department, Delavan United Methodist Church and Delavan Community Historical Society.

Jacob Ista served with the U. S. Army.  Following his military service, Jacob served in the Honor Guard for military funeral honors and next of kin notification.  In Jacob's barber shop, veterans were hired, services to veterans were discounted, and clients funded Buy A Vet A Haircut program. His staff's outreach also included support for Goodwill, including the "Stand Down" where over 30 haircuts and other services are provided to veterans.

At the April 12, 2019 Lincoln Day Dinner, Chairman Jim Rule made a plea for donations to the party.  He provided a list of the priorities for Tazewell County Republicans to assure donors that the funding is needed and will be spent wisely.  Our keynote speaker, Lt. Col. Oliver North responded with a personal check for $1,000 and challenged the audience to do the same.

2019 Lincoln Day DinnerLt. Col. Oliver North

We are excited to announce the Tazewell County Republicans will host Lt. Col. Oliver North, President of the National Rifle Association, at our next Lincoln Day Dinner on April 12th, 2019.  

The Tazewell County Republican Lincoln Day Dinner is our major fundraiser of the year.  We have to fight the progressive Liberal agenda on all fronts and our hard-working elected Republican officials in Springfield cannot do it alone now that Democrats have a super-majority.  Our agenda is simple; raise money, energize our base and recruit good people who can run and win at all levels. 

Lt. Col. North's inspiring message along with the silent and live auctions planned for the evening will be remembered for years to come and will be a gala you will not want to miss.

November 6 Election Results

A big thank you to all of you who voted yesterday. Chairman Jim Rule

While we did not do well at the state level and despite losing control of the U.S. House of Representatives to the Democrats, we hit a grand slam in Tazewell County by having ALL of our candidates win!  Add to it, Tazewell County did its part by carrying all the candidates in the state-wide election with the exception of one. Of all registered voters in Tazewell County, 57.6% participated in the electoral process and that is a phenomenal number for a mid-term. 

Another interesting fact is our Early Voting initiative hit a 15% mark which was at our target goal!

See all the election results here

Many people devoted an immeasurable amount of time to this effort from Precinct Committeemen and Committeewomen to volunteers who manned the office, made phone calls to encourage people to vote and who were on standby ready to give anyone who needed a ride to the polls.  Thank you to all who manned the festival booths and walked in parades with candidate t-shirts and supporting them at various events.  Thanks to all who posted yard signs and talked to family and friends about the importance of this election or wrote letters to the editor.  Thank you to all who work as Election Judges and Poll Watchers. It all culminated in a huge Tazewell County Republican victory over the Democrats yesterday and all the hard work and dedication to Republican and Conservative values paid off. 

I look forward to working with all of you to continue to make Tazewell County a leader in Illinois politics.
