Welcome to the Macon County, NC Republican Party


The 2015 GOP District 11 Convention was held on April 25, at Pisgah High School, in Canton, NC.

The Macon County GOP delegation to the 11th Congressional District Convention on April 25 in Canton was one of the largest there, with 26 delegates. We also had three members of the Macon County Teenage Republicans (TARS) with us, and they were introduced on stage to the convention body. Congressman Mark Meadows spoke about the importance of faithfully representing the people of this district, which at times means going against party leadership, and he encouraged us to get on Twitter (even if we have grey hair) so we can better influence the political dialogue for the 2016 elections.

The business of the convention included adopting the Plan of Organization and resolutions. Candidates (or their representatives) for state GOP offices, asked for our support at the upcoming state convention. Representatives for Ted Cruz and Ben Carson also spoke.
District GOP officers were elected for two-year terms. David Sawyer was re-elected Chairman, and Matt Wechtel was elected First Vice Chair. More information about the 11th District Committee can be found at

Tailgate Party - October 9, 2014

Indeed, the MC GOP knows how to party! Ten crock pots of amazing chili all gone....140 hot dogs gone...a gorgeous huge, sheet cake eaten to the last crumb...

Congressman Meadows led the charge to fight the next 25 days to secure a win!

Individuals donated the food and all the trimmings for our rally, leaving us with more means to get the message out in radio and print ads.

And the MC GOP did not feed the crowd free food prior to the football game on the 9th, taking money away from the FHS booster club!


Candidarte Party
Some 150 conservative voters/voices crowded into the MC GOP HQ last night to support our NC Senator Jim Davis and soon to be DA, Ashley Welch.
What a super night. We raised the roof, raised money and rallied for two of our own.

Government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.
