Why I Am Running

Marci McCarthy for National Delegate | Proudly Representing the GA5th

Warm greetings to each of you, and my sincere appreciation for your active engagement in the vital process of selecting our National Committeeman, National Committeewoman, and Delegates to the Republican National Convention. Your dedication to this process not only amplifies our collective voice but also ensures that the values and beliefs of our precincts, counties, districts, and states are well represented on the national stage.

As Donald J. Trump emerges as the presumptive nominee, the significance of our unified presence as Georgia Republicans at the Republican National Convention cannot be overstated. It is through our cohesion and collaboration that we secure a prominent seat at the national table, advancing our shared vision for the future of our great nation. The convention, where delegates from all fifty U.S. states and territories convene to officially nominate and confirm a candidate for president and vice president, adopt a comprehensive party platform, and unify the party, marks the formal end of the primary election period and the start of the general election season. In this critical moment, characterized by unprecedented challenges and opportunities, the responsibility entrusted to us as delegates carries immense weight. Integrity, honor, and unwavering commitment are the cornerstones upon which we must build our actions and decisions, particularly when called upon to nominate President Donald J. Trump as the Republican Party Candidate for President of the United States.

My journey in service to the Republican Party has been defined by dedication, passion, and servant leadership. From my role as county party Chairman in DeKalb County to serving on the GAGOP Election Confidence Task Force, my commitment to grassroots engagement and election integrity within our party has remained steadfast. Currently serving as the Chairman of the DeKalb Republican Party, I secured my second term unanimously by acclamation. During the 2022 Midterm Elections, my steadfast leadership and strategic vision notably doubled Republican turnout and bolstered margins of victory in the second bluest county in Georgia. In 2024, I spearheaded the recruitment and motivation of 16 candidates to run for U.S. Congress, Georgia General Assembly, and DeKalb School Board. Notably, 11 of the Georgia Senate and Georgia House candidates were supported with a one-time $400 donation from the DeKalb GOP, aimed at alleviating the financial strain of qualifying for office.
