    The Republican party was formed by people who were against slavery and wanted to defeat the slavery dominated Democratic Party.

    The republican party formed because a group of whigs and democrats felt that their parties weren't taking the slavery issue strongly enough. Because of this, they formed the party so they could raise awareness that there were people who took slavery seriously.
