National Federation of Republican Assemblies
Abbreviation NFRA
Motto "The Republican Wing of the Republican Party"®
Formation 1934 (California); 1996 (National)
Legal status 527
President Rod D. Martin (2007- )
Website http://www.RepublicanAssemblies.org

The National Federation of Republican Assemblies (NFRA) is a grassroots political organization which promotes conservative principles and candidates within the Republican Party. Members at the local, state and national levels work to recruit and elect Republican candidates who reflect the Party’s conservative philosophy, and to oppose "RINOs" (Republicans In Name Only), leaders and candidates who take positions to the left of the party's mainstream.

A central aspect of the NFRA's mission is the endorsement of candidates in contested Republican primaries, something most Republican support groups and committees choose not to do. NFRA endorsing conventions are held at the local and state levels, and a Presidential Preference Convention is held at the national level. A candidate must win two-thirds of the votes cast at a convention to secure its endorsement. Endorsements are upwardly binding: a local or state chapter's endorsement automatically secures the endorsement of the higher levels of the organization.[1][2]

The first Republican Assembly was founded in 1934 in California. The movement grew primarily in the western part of the United States until, in 1996, the several state Republican Assemblies formalized their relationship to one another through the creation of a national federation, which was also tasked with the establishment of state chapters in those parts of the country to which the movement had not yet spread. Prominent current and past members include President Ronald Reagan, Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly, Americans for Tax Reform founder Grover Norquist, and Minuteman Civil Defense Corps founder and current U.S. Senate candidate Chris Simcox.[3][4][5]
