This category holds links for national committees, affiliated and auxiliary organizations, and fan pages of the Republican Party, the primary center-right political party in the United States. The Party is often referred to as the GOP, or Grand Old Party, and its symbol is the elephant. The Republican Party was founded in 1854 by members of the Free Soil Party and the Conscience Whigs-- members of the Whig Party from the North so called because of their then-radical opposition to slavery. The election of Illinois Republican Abraham Lincoln in 1860 firmly established the Republican Party as a major force in American politics. Other Republican Presidents include Ulysses S Grant, Theodore Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower, and Ronald Reagan.
