MohaveGOP.com is an unofficial website for Republicans in Mohave County, Arizona. Mohave County is located in the northwestern corner of the state and the 2010 census pegged the population at 200,186 people and 1,250 wild burros.
The county seat is Kingman. Lake Havasu City is the largest city. The Fort Mohave, Kaibab and Hualapai Indian Reservations are within the county, which also includes parts of the Grand Canyon National Park, Lake Mead National Recreation Area, and all of the Grand Canyon Parashant National Monument.
The GOP in MohaveGOP, of course, stands for Grand Old Party, the Republican Party.
“Founded in 1854 as a coalition opposing the extension of slavery into Western territories, the Republican Party fought to protect the rights of African Americans after the Civil War,” notes History.com. “Today’s GOP is generally socially conservative, and favors smaller government, less regulation, lower taxes and less federal intervention in the economy.”
