The Republican Main Street Partnership was founded in 1997 by former Rep. Amory Houghton Jr. with the intent of strengthening the governing wing of the Republican Party.

Members of the Republican Main Street Partnership represent the governing wing of the Republican party. This means all of our members share a commitment to conservative, pragmatic government that works to better American communities across the country. Main Street’s members are solution-oriented legislators dedicated to defending Main Street Americans and advancing common-sense policies that can command bipartisan support.

As our nation grapples with significant issues affecting every American, it is more important than ever that our leaders in Washington continue to effectively govern in the Republican tradition while putting partisan politics aside to work across the aisle in crafting policy that moves the country forward.
