Limited government and prosperity for Illinois

Welcome

Palatine Township Republican Organization is the premier political organization of the Chicagoland area. We have become stop #1 and the victory center for political campaigns across the state. Governors, lawmakers, judges, radio personalities and numerous state politicians have come through our doors.

 

Our great state of Illinois, rich with history and national significance, is in jeopardy. Although the Democrats would have you believe that we can spend our way to prosperity, the future of its citizens will continue to be at stake during each election. Here at PTRO we are teaming up with Republicans and Independents from across the state to help get our citizens involved and their voices heard. With your help we will regain important seats both locally and nationally as we strive to enforce constitutional limits on government and get our fiscal house in order.

 

Our supporters are gaining steam across Illinois. Its time to reverse the damage done by President Obama and progressive policies.

What will that be like? Do Democrats have a plan for their party, post-Madigan? It doesn’t sound like it. But the rest of Illinois? We’re there. We’re ready for the post-Madigan era.
