Welcome to the
Manhattan Republican Party


A Note from Our Chair


Great job!!! This Election Day, we proved that we are building our Republican Party in Manhattan! We as a county committee have a lot to be proud of. Despite record turnout, our Manhattan Republican Party candidates built on our 2018 performance – our party’s best performance in 18 years! This Election Day we demonstrated that all your efforts matter. I want to thank you for all your hard work and support. We have been very vocal, and our strategy is working. New Yorkers are becoming increasingly fed up with failed Democratic leadership and we must continue to build on the energy surrounding our Republican Party in Manhattan. We must fight for safer streets, lower taxes and fiscal responsibility, equal opportunity for all and to save our small businesses.

I want to thank our Manhattan GOP team for working tirelessly to support our candidates – they worked around the clock to keep our party going and they don’t get enough thanks or credit. Thank you to our Vice Chair Allie Nigolian, Political Director Robert Morgan Jr., Advisor Rob Cole, and Ore Jacinto and Jason Weingartner who run our Liberty Club.

And I, of course, want to thank our amazing slate of candidates who showed the great diversity of our party in Manhattan. Carlos Santiago-Cano, Cathy Bernstein, Lovelynn Gwinn, Lester Chang, Oz Sultan, Melinda Crump, Mike Zumbluskas, Tamara Lashchyk, Daby Carreras, Judy Graham and Lou Puliafito - thank you for representing our party so well and for stepping up at a time when your city needs you the most. Each candidate ran a spirited battle against the leftist Democrats who are ruining the city with their hands-off approach to law enforcement and quality of life. The numbers speak for themselves as we came close to picking up a seat on the Upper East Side. Garnering over 40 percent of the vote, Lou Puliafito came within reach of taking out a long-term Democratic incumbent Assemblywoman. Lou's community-focused grassroots campaign outperformed the top of the ticket and every Manhattan Republican campaign since 2002. We couldn't be prouder of Lou and the campaign he ran.

Furthermore, for the first time in a long time, the Democrats had to spend money in Manhattan- it was their 2nd most expensive assembly race in NY State. Those dollars spent in Manhattan were dollars not spent in other competitive races across the state. Therefore, we Manhattan Republicans played a key role in contributing to the HUGE RED WAVE we witnessed in New York State. The fact that the Democrats had to spend large amounts of money and fight to win a seat in Manhattan for the first time in 18 years is something we all should be proud of.

These numbers show that we have a great opportunity in 2021 with the Mayoral and City Council races. I look forward to our fight against Mayor de Blasio’s policies that have destroyed our city and getting behind candidates that are going to build it back.

We at the Manhattan Republican Party are fighting for you and we are fighting for our city and we will never give up. Our record performance shows that nothing is impossible, we are heading in the right direction, and we CAN and we WILL take our city back!

Thank you for your loyalty and support and I wish you and your families a healthy and happy holiday season.
