What is the RSLC?

About RSLC

The Republican State Leadership Committee (RSLC) isn’t just another alphabet soup political committee. We’re the largest caucus of Republican state leaders in the nation with one unified goal: winning.

Through innovative strategies and record-levels of support, we successfully recruit and elect Republicans to state legislatures and judicial seats as well as the offices of lieutenant governor, secretary of state, and statewide agriculture official. We are champions of oft-ignored races, leading the fight to stop radical socialism’s spread through the states.

With nearly 200,000 donors across all 50 states, the RSLC has been able to invest millions into state races since 2002. In the 2017-2018 election cycle alone, we spent a record $45 million, directly contributing to Republican victories across the country. By maintaining 59 of 99 legislative chambers, holding 24 lieutenant governor seats, and protecting 29 secretaries of state offices, Republicans have never been in a stronger position to pass legislation and advocate for voters in their states.
