The mission of Republican Women of Okaloosa Federated is to bring women together to educate members about local, state and national issues; to improve the quality of life in Okaloosa County through political activity and community involvement; to advance the participation of Republican women in all areas of our political system; and to encourage and support qualified Republican women to seek and win public office. 

Message from President Maddie McNeal       

Welcome to the website of Republican Women of Okaloosa Federated (RWOF).  We are part of the largest and most active political organization dedicated to women in America. Founded in 1938, the National Federation of Republican Women is one of the largest grassroots political organizations in the country.

The objective of our organization is to strengthen the Republican Party by educating and empowering Republican women in the political process and provide a forum for them to serve as leaders in their communities

Our monthly programs are designed to keep you better informed about National, State, and Local candidates as well as crucial issues that face our community, state and nation.

After a very successful 2016 Presidential Election, winning control of the House and Senate, one would think that our work is done.  Not so!  We have five statewide races in Florida in 2018:  Governor, U.S. Senator, Attorney General, Chief Financial Officer, and Agricultural Commissioner.   The “DRIVE FOR FIVE” campaign will be the focus of our activities this year in addition to helping our local officials, at all levels, running for office. Let’s get the job done!
