The North Dakota Republican Party, abbreviated ND GOP, is the North Dakota affiliate of the United States Republican Party. The current party chairman is Gary Emineth. The party currently controls both of the state's legislative bodies (the House and Senate) as well as 11 of the North Dakota's 12 statewide offices.



The state Republican party has always been a major force in state politics, in many cases having a dominant position. Founded in 1889, the party initially dominated all state politics for the state's first 20 years of existence, with the exception of a brief period from 1893 to 1894 in which the North Dakota Democratic-Independent Party briefly overthrew the Republican party.

In the early 20th century, the party was effectively divided into two groups that nominated candidates on the Republican ticket, the progressive Non-Partisan League and the conservative Independent Voters Association. This period ended when the NPL merged with the state Democratic party, and the IVA effectively became known as the Republican party. Currently, the party maintains majorities in both the House of Representatives and the Senate and controls 11 of the 12 statewide offices.

The party holds its convention in the spring of election years. 2008's Republican Convention will be held from March 28 to March 30 in Fargo.
