STATEMENT ON THE STAR ADVERTISER POLL FROM THE CAMPAIGN OF ANDRIA TUPOLA FOR GOVERNOR
News Release from Tupola Campaign July 15, 2018
“We are very excited to announce new polling released today by The Star Advertiser showing Andria leading the pack! Along with gaining favorable name recognition, Andria leads by a margin of 13%.
In 4 short years, Andria has worked with her community to bring real change. She intends to bring that same vigor to the governor's office and empower people across the state of Hawaii to address our systemic problems with a new perspective.
Andria is well poised to make substantial gains as voters meet her and hear her vision for Hawaii. “When I heard Andria speak, I was floored. I heard something in Andria that I’ve never heard in a politician to date. I still haven’t heard anyone talk the way Andria does. I think what I’m most impressed with in Andria is her complete, fresh, grassroots approach to solving problems,” said community member Rob Hardisty.
Her deep roots to Hawai’i and love for all communities in the state highlight why Andria is the candidate of choice for governor. We look forward to winning August's primary and pulling across the finish line in November!”
