Hawaii Republican Party Hosts Successful Lincoln Day Dinner
By Andy Mukk, Vice Chair for Communications, Hawaii Republican Party, February 23, 2014
Nearly 300 Hawaii Republicans heard a powerful and compelling message last Thursday night at our annual Lincoln Day Dinner from Martha McSally, our keynote speaker and a candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives from the 2nd Congressional District of Arizona, in a race drawing nationwide attention.
As an Air Force officer, she became the first U.S. female pilot to fly in combat and to command a fighter squadron in combat. Her life history as an Ironman triathlon winner in the women's military category and a woman who successfully challenged a Department of Defense policy which required U.S. military women to wear a Muslim burka while off base in Saudi Arabia, consistently demonstrated she has what it takes to persevere and win.
The key points our 2014 candidates and members heard from her military and political career culminated in a compelling call to action.
Martha McSally's message brought Republicans to their feet in a sustained standing ovation. Inspired and grateful for her eloquent example, Hawaii Republicans went home confident, energized to support our candidates in 2014.
