The rally will be organized by WSRP or Washington State Republican Party. There is not much other information about the party, but there is a lot of information about the WSRP (Washington State Republican Party). The WSRP says that this will be the biggest Republican Rally in Washington.
About the Washington State Republican Party
According to their website, It all started in 1854 at a schoolhouse in Ripon, Wisconsin. A tiny number of committed abolitionists banded together to combat slavery’s spread, and the Party for Freedom and Equal Opportunity was born.
The name “Republican” was selected in honour of Thomas Jefferson’s Democratic-Republican Party and to express a devotion to the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and happiness.
Thousands of anti-slavery campaigners formally founded the Party in July 1854 during a conference in Jackson, Michigan. It was no coincidence that the first Republican National Convention took held in Philadelphia two years later, in 1856, where the Constitution was drafted.
Again, according to them, The GOP’s elephant emblem emerged during the 1860 campaign as a sign of Republican power and was popularised by a Thomas Nast cartoon. “Free soil, free speech, and free labour” was the Republican goal. The GOP also became the Party of the Union under President Abraham Lincoln’s leadership.
The Emancipation Proclamation was issued by President Abraham Lincoln, but the slaves were emancipated by the whole Republican Party. The Republican National Convention in 1864 advocated for the abolition of slavery, and Republicans in Congress overwhelmingly enacted the 13th Amendment with only a few Democratic votes.
As a continuation of abolitionism, the early women’s rights movement was mostly Republican. They were cautious not to be unduly political, although most suffragists, like Susan B. Anthony, supported the Republican Party.
The WSRP also continues by saying, “Two views of the future, two profoundly different methods of governing – their government of pessimism, fear, and constraints, or ours of optimism, confidence, and progress,” Ronald Reagan said of the differences between Democrats and Republicans. “People are only seen as members of groups by their government. Ours caters to all of America’s citizens as individuals.”
They also claim that, In the early years of the Republican Party’s tenure in Washington, the Republican Party had electoral supremacy. Republicans won the first election for governor and majorities in both chambers of the newly formed state legislature in 1889.
The Washington State Republican Party, which was founded in 1890, was a party of firsts, electing William Owen Bush to the Washington State Legislature as the state’s first African-American representative. He is renowned for sponsoring legislation that resulted in the founding of Washington State University and was a relentless advocate for Washington agriculture.
They claim that the party-affiliated Seattle Post-Intelligencer and, subsequently, the Seattle Republican promoted Republican principles throughout the early years of statehood. The Seattle Republican, founded by an ex-slave, rose to become the city’s second-largest newspaper.
Reba Hurn of Spokane, a Republican, was elected to the Washington State Senate for the first time in 1922 and served from 1923 to 1930. Hurn supported conservative fiscal policies while also advocating for a liberal social agenda, including helping to create the state’s first child labour legislation.
Reba Hurn’s contributions helped shape the state party into what it is today. A financially conservative political party that advocates gender, class, and racial equality.
The party’s chairman is Caleb Heimlich.
About Caleb Heimlich
Since there is no Wiki of Caleb Heimlich, all we have to go off of is the information revealed by the party itself.

Since his election in January 2018, he has served as Chairman of the Washington State Republican Party.
