Plano Republican Women is proud to endorse the following Republicans
PRW cannot endorse one Republican candidate over another, so in races with more than one Republican, PRW cannot make an endorsement. All of the following candidates are running against a Democrat or Independent party candidate, so PRW is able to endorse these Republicans.

On July 17, 1962, the Plano Republican Women’s Club (PRWC) was organized to work for the election of Republican candidates at the local, state, and national levels. At that time, there were no Republican elected officials in Collin County and no Republican women’s clubs.
During the next two decades PRWC’s efforts at building the Republican Party and working for Republican candidates were important in achieving today’s Republican majority in Collin County.
In 2002, PRWC changed its name to “Plano Republican Women” and celebrated its 40th anniversary, continuing its tradition as an active, vibrant organization of capable women who offer time, talent, money, and leadership toward the election efforts of Republican candidates at the local, state, and national levels.
