Welcome to Minnesota Federation of Republican Women. We are a group dedicated to electing qualified Republican women and men to office. We activate women across the state in political campaigns and work to strengthen the structure of the Republican Party. Our membership is a wide span of ages, interests and careers. Our local, state and national organization provides many networking opportunities and individual members grow their leadership skills. Join in the fun. If you would like to start a club, we will help you build and grow!
Meet Our MFRW Convention Speakers
MAJORITY LEADER JOYCE PEPPIN (34A)
A wife and mother of two, Representative Peppin is serving her sixth term representing residents of northwest Hennepin County. In addition to her work as Majority Leader, she chairs the Rules and Legislative Administration Committee.
REPRESENTATIVE SONDRA ERICKSON (15A)
First elected to the Minnesota House in 1998, Representative Erickson draws on her 34-year career as an English and journalism teacher as she chairs the Education Innovation Policy Committee and serves on the Education Finance and Tax committees. She also chairs the Ethics Committee
REPRESENTATIVE TAMA THEIS (14A)
A 2013 special election victory brought Representative Theis and her small business-owner skills to the House. She serves on the Capital Investment, Commerce and Regulatory Reform, and Government Operations and Elections Policy committees. Additionally, she is Vice-chair of the Aging and Long-Term Care Policy Committee.
SENATOR CARRIE RUUD (SD 10)

NATIONAL COMMITTEEWOMAN JANET BEIHOFFER
Shortly after her retirement from IBM and early in her political life, Ms. Beihoffer developed a first-of-its-kind, statewide poll-challenging program and later served as Director of Election Operations for MNGOP. That work—plus her service as CD2 Chair and her prominence as a political blogger—paved the way for her election to the position of National Committeewoman in 2012.

We believe the strength of our nation lies within the individual and that each person’s dignity, freedom, ability and responsibility must be honored.
We believe in equal rights, equal justice and equal opportunity for all regardless of race, creed, age, sex, national origin or disability.
We believe that free enterprise and encouraging individual initiative have brought this nation opportunity, growth and prosperity.
We believe government must practice fiscal responsibility and allow individuals to keep more of the money they earn.
We believe the proper role of government is to provide for the people only those critical functions that cannot be performed by individuals or private organizations, and that the best government is that which governs least.
We believe the most effective, responsibly and responsive government is government closest to the people.
We believe Americans must retain the principles that have made us strong while developing new and innovative ideas to meet the challenges of changing times.
We believe Americans value and should preserve our national strength and pride while working to extend peace, freedom and human rights throughout the world.
We believe the Republican Party is the best vehicle for translating these ideas into positive and successful principles of government.
