Resources – Conservative Friends

An important part of being involved with politics and government is staying informed.  The 47th would like to suggest that you visit the following websites, and if interested, join as a member, subscribe to their newsletters, or otherwise learn from their information.  At least, rest assured that there are plenty of conservative groups to help promote our ideals.  If you know of another organization we should add to the list, please notify us at “chair@kc47gop.org“.
