We hope you had a wonderful Fourth! 

It was great to see so many people celebrating our Independence alongside us. When the Declaration of Independence was signed 242 years ago, our Founding Fathers envisioned a country dedicated to "Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness", and yesterday's festivities showcased that vision. We are incredibly lucky to enjoy freedom in this country, and we're glad that we have candidates who will serve us and protect our liberties. 

Republicans elected officials, candidates, and activists participated in parades in all corners of Kent County. Though it was a hot, muggy day, the excitement in each campaign was palpable thanks to our energetic volunteers who handed out thousands of flyers, candy, flags, and stickers. Thank you to all who came out to support our candidates! 

Below is a look at the day in action. Interested in helping Republicans in future parades? Sign up HERE.
