It is easier to make a decision when you have all the information!!!

Endorsements by TCRP: Do We or Don’t We?

In spite of what you may have heard or read elsewhere, the Tipton County Republican Party can not and does not endorse candidates in Primary Elections.  Also, there are only two official sites condoned by the TCRP:   http://www.tiptoncountyrp.org and our facebook page, which is Tipton County Republican Party. Those are the only two sites produced by the official Tipton County Republican Party. Other sites are not controlled, condoned, or approved by TCRP.  As we always encourage you to do: do your homework! :-)
