Simpsons Wiki

Springfield Republican Party is Springfield's branch of the Republican Party.

Portrayal in the show

A meeting of the party.

The Springfield Republican Party Headquarters is frequently portrayed in the show as an ominous dark tower, with a thunderstorm always brewing above it, often accompanied by spooky mood music or the menacing cry of a falcon or howl of a wolf. Among themselves, the party members are stereotypes of Republicans (according to the show's writers and series creator Matt Groening) often open about doing dastardly deeds and plotting nefarious schemes, as seen in "Brawl in the Family".

Despite being more ominous, they are less powerful in the political positions of Springfield, whereas the Democratic Party holds control over the Mayor's and (usually) the Governor's offices. However, the Republicans have managed to gain control over the Governor's office at least once (in the 1998 election).

Its meetings are often chaired by C. Montgomery Burns.
