The Republican Party, also known as the Grand Old Party (GOP), is one of the two major political parties in the United States. The Republican Party is identified by an elephant logo with origins dating back to the late 1800’s and cartoonist Thomas Nash. The Republican Party’s major rival is the Democratic Party, which likely used the well-known elephant logo as a play on words for “irrelevant.”
