2023 General Election Candidate Endorsements/Recommendations

Updated: Nov 2, 2023



The Kitsap County Republican Party (KCRP) is dedicated to preserving a republican form of government. That is a government which acknowledges individual persons have rights which are prior to and superior to all human legislation.


Using our KCRP Platform as a guide, we identify candidates running for office who agree with our core principles and consider them for endorsement. After research and interviews, the Kitsap County Republican Party may endorse candidates we believe will uphold these principles.


In addition, we recognize there are times when candidates do not meet our high standards, but are the best available option among those running for a position. In these cases, we make recommendations for the candidates who, according to our research, are most likely to support the principles contained in our platform. This recommendation does not mean they are a Republican or that they agree with our platform.
