Aloha, Fellow Republicans!
We are so excited to announce that Hawaii is the FIRST state in the nation who has committed binding all our delegates to President Donald J. Trump! Hawaii is the first state to officially cancel our Presidential Preference Vote as a result of President Trump being the sole candidate to qualify for the ballot. It's awesome that we get to lead our nation for a sweep of GOP delegates across the nation in the GOP's run-up to the National Convention being in held in Charlotte, North Carolina this coming August!
Now the nation's eyes are on us...our place in 2020 election cycle history has been set. Now is the time for all of us to roll up our sleeves, as we have much to do. I urge you all to get involved in your districts, precincts and neighborhoods to register voters and organize for victory, supporting President Trump and all our Republicans that will be running for office here in Hawaii.
I'd like to share the press release with all of you:
Hawaii GOP Will Bind all its 2020 Convention Delegates to Presidential Candidate Donald J. Trump
Honolulu, Hawaii – Dec 11, 2019 – The Hawaii Republican Party proudly announced today that it will bind all its 19 National Convention delegates to Presidential Candidate, President Donald J. Trump. Hawaii is the first state to officially cancel its presidential preference vote as a result of President Trump being the sole candidate to qualify for the ballot, positioning President Trump for a sweep of GOP delegates across the nation in the GOP's run-up to the National Convention being held in Charlotte, North Carolina this coming August.
The Hawaii GOP Party Chair, Shirlene Ostrov, stated, "Hawaii Republicans across the state are united in their support of President Trump and look forward to his second four-year term. President Trump's economic achievements have benefited citizens across the country and in Hawaii, despite corrupt leadership of state Democrats who have negligently accrued billions in unfunded pension liabilities and deceptively implemented a grossly failed rail project destined to raise property taxes out-of-sight."
Trump Campaign Chairman AL Frenzel commented that statewide enthusiasm for President Trump has reinvigorated local Party membership and will result in successes up and down the ballot. Frenzel suggested that Hawaiians who have witnessed the failures of the state's Democrat leadership should take into consideration the major successes they have seen under President Trump and Republican leadership as they vote in 2020.
Since President Trump took office, he has added 13,600 jobs to Hawaii's economy and lowered the state's unemployment rate to 2.7%. Under President Obama, Hawaii's unemployment rate peaked at 7.3%. President Trump has added money back into paychecks of Hawaii voters, with the Hawaii taxpayer receiving an average tax cut of $1,345. It's clear President Trump's policies are working for Americans everywhere, and the Hawaii Republican Party is excited to re-elect this president in 2020.
With warmest aloha,
