Eden Prairie and Minnetonka Republicans

What is a Senate District and what do we do?

Our mission is to endorse, support and elect Republicans to fight for our rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness in our local, state and federal government.

We pursue this goal by mobilizing our local area conservatives in support of our local issues as well as Endorsed Candidates.

You may also hear us described as a "BPOU".  What is a BPOU?!

BPOU stands for Basic Political Operating Unit. What that really means, is that a BPOU is the grass roots level of political organization. Generally the BPOU encompasses a particular Senate District.

The BPOU operates as a fairly independent group. It has it’s own executive committee, leadership, budget, etc. Each BPOU endorses Delegates & Alternates during election years at it’s Caucuses and during off-election years holds conventions to elect officers to the executive committee and address other new business.

(Each ten years redistricting could affect the BPOU boundaries.)

Senate District 48 Republicans/BPOU get together with several of the other SD's monthly for a happy hour, called Pints & Politics. Click on our "Events" tab to see when we're getting together next!

We welcome you to join us for our annual Freedom Banquet, Chili Cook-off, Ice Cream Social, and other Candidate focused events. 

We’d love to hear from you! sd48mngopchair@gmail.com
