Appearance of a Republican opponent (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

arrival

Here is my best explanation:

'appearance' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'a republican opponent' is the subsidiary indication.

'republican' becomes 'r' (abbreviation).

'opponent' becomes 'rival' (I've seen this before).

'a'+'r'+'rival'='arrival'

'of' is the link.

(Other definitions for arrival that I've seen before include "Someone who's just come", "The reaching of one's destination", "Attainment of destination", "Appearance, entrance", "Coming - comer", "Achievement of destination", "Appearance (at a place)", "Advent", "Appearance (at a destination)" and "Act of coming".)
