STATEMENT BY DUKE AIONA
HONOLULU - Lt. Governor Duke Aiona today issued the following statement regarding a personal letter that was sent by Hawai‘i Republican Party Chairman Jonah Ka‘auwai to his supporters.
"While faith is a central part of my life, I'm running for Governor to serve all the people of Hawai‘i - regardless of their religion.
"The goal of our grassroots campaign is to connect with every citizen in every community of this great state, and Chairman Ka‘auwai's personal comments are seen by many as divisive.
"Our campaign is focused on families, friends and neighbors of all backgrounds, and we're going to continue to reach out to all the citizens of Hawai‘i."
