This weekend, thanks to the generous support of RNC Sustaining Members like you, Charles Djou was elected to the U.S. House in Hawaii’s 1st Congressional District.
The race was decided by only a few thousand votes. Democrats and liberal special interests were determined to keep this seat in Democrat hands — a seat they had held for nearly 20 years—and flooded the district with party operatives and millions of dollars in campaign cash.
Despite the Democrats’ tactics, the RNC’s voter contact and get-out-the-vote programs helped push our GOP candidate over the top. The RNC made roughly 70,000 voter contacts—phone calls and door knocks—to ensure Republicans and like-minded Independents voted for Charles Djou.
This victory is another step toward Republicans regaining a majority in the U.S. House, firing Nancy Pelosi as Speaker and putting our country back on the right path. But we can take nothing for granted. We must work harder than ever to ensure our candidates at all levels have the necessary resources to defeat the Democrats this fall.
Please help keep the momentum going. Your secure online contribution of $25, $50, $100 or $500 to the Republican National Committee today will help our Party stay on track to nationwide victories in the 2010 midterm elections.
With your continuing support, we will retake the U.S. House, reclaim the U.S. Senate and elect more Republican governors and state legislators in November. Thank you again for helping our Party win a historic victory in Hawaii, and moving us one step closer to firing Nancy Pelosi.
