News Release from Agustin Campaign October 12, 2016

Jaci Agustin is a Candidate for the Hawaii State House of Representatives from District 34 (Waimalu, Pearl City, Pacific Palisades) and she received National recognition today from the Republican State Leadership Committee by being included in their list of “16 in 16” Races to Watch across America.

Agustin was humbled and honored to receive the recognition saying, “It is recognition of the hard work and endless hours by so many individuals to place us in a position to win this race. I am full of gratitude to my family, supporters and campaign team.”

“The Republican State Leadership Committee (RSLC) is the largest caucus of Republican state leaders in the country and the only national organization whose mission is to elect down-ballot, state-level Republican officeholders. Since 2002, the RSLC has been working to elect candidates to the offices of lieutenant governor, attorney general, secretary of state, state legislator, the judiciary and other down ticket races.” Agustin’s opponent on November 8th is incumbent Gregg Takayama.

RSLC Debuts Third Round of “16 in ’16: Races to Watch”

News Release from RSLC, OCTOBER 12, 2016

WASHINGTON, DC — Today, the Republican State Leadership Committee (RSLC) debuted its third round of “16 in ’16: Races to Watch.” Announced in partnership with the RSLC’s Future Majority Project (FMP) and Right Women, Right Now (RWRN) initiatives, the list released today reflects 16 impressive Republican women and diverse candidates running for state-level office this year. The individuals highlighted are well-respected local leaders hailing from 16 states, who serve their communities as educators, small business owners, grassroots activists, and more.

“Since 2012, FMP and RWRN have led the charge in recruiting and supporting qualified, conservative candidates who represent the full diversity of the communities they seek to serve,” said RSLC President Matt Walter. “In that time, 229 new women and 73 new diverse individuals have been elected with RSLC support, and with candidates such as those featured today, I have no doubt we will continue to grow that number in November. Nearly 6,000 state legislative seats will be up for grabs on Election Day, in addition to 10 lieutenant governor and nine secretaries of state offices, and our  “16 in ’16” list illustrates the caliber of our candidates at large — candidates who we will support as they go on to run, win and serve their communities in the government closest to home.”
