It happened during the progessive era. In 1912 Teddy Roosevelt bolted the GOP and ran as an independent, taking many of the progressive republicans with him. They objected to the pro-corporate policies of the Taft administration. Ever since then the GOP has been the party of corporations and conservatives. There are many other factors that played out during the 20th century to swing the GOP that way, but that was the main turning point. 1912.

It's nice to know a history teacher! :)
