About Us

The Hidalgo Young Republicans is a local chapter of the Texas Young Republicans Federation.

The purpose of the group is to support the principles and objectives of the Republican Party, to work for the election of all duly nominated Republican candidates and to promote the interests of young Republicans from South Texas College, UTRGV and Hidalgo County.

We engage in grassroots politics, meet candidates and office holders, and experience what it means to be a proactive citizen. In order to be a voting member of our organization you have to be between 18 and 40 years of age but we welcome anyone over the age of 40 to become associate members.

Politically Passionate

The Hidalgo Young Republicans provide a positive and professional environment for young Republicans to meet and support efforts that grow the Republican Party.

Inclusive Network

For young Republicans in the Hidalgo County area we host a variety of social and educational events that are the perfect place to meet like-minded individuals.

Volunteer Driven

Volunteer to work on a local, state or national campaigns. Get involved in the Hidalgo County political scene and help us make a difference.
