About Us

Republicans Fighting Tariffs exists to remind everyone why the Republican Party is the party of free trade. Free trade allows for strong businesses, good jobs, low prices, and a thriving economy. Tariffs, on the other hand, are an unwarranted tax on American businesses and families. We are urging Republicans everywhere to come together and tell Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to allow a vote on a bill that would end these tariffs and save jobs.

Republicans Fighting Tariffs is a project of Defending Democracy Together. For interview requests, contact us at [email protected].
