News Release from NFRA, October, 2017

Mesa, Arizona -- Members of the National Federation of Republican Assemblies (NFRA) voted unanimously on Sunday, October 8th, to re-elect current NFRA President Willes K. Lee for a two-year term as president of the nationwide conservative political organization and parent organization of the Hawaii Republican Assembly (HIRA), home to Hawaii's conservative Republicans.

Held this year in Mesa, Arizona, the annual convention of the NFRA drew hundreds of conservative political activists from Republican Assembly chapters across the country.  Additional participants in the NFRA convention include the American Conservative Union Foundation, the National Rifle Association, Corey Lewandowski, Dick Morris, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Judicial Watch, American Majority and members of the U.S. House of Representatives Freedom Caucus.

Upon being re-elected, Lee remarked: “We’re in a daily fight to save our American culture from progressives. NFRA holds liberals, Democrats and Republicans, accountable. We help elect conservatives because we know conservative solutions are best for America. The NFRA is prepared to take a leading role in winning these battles to secure the blessings of freedom so we can leave our country better than we found it.”

Lee previously served as NFRA as Executive Vice President.  In addition, Lee serves as a member of the board of directors for the National Rifle Association of America and on the board of the American Conservative Union Foundation which produces CPAC events and annual ratings of members of congress and state legislatures.  Lee is also a co-Chairman of the Trump-Pence Second Amendment Coalition leadership team, a member of the Council for National Policy, and the national director for the Hawaii Republican Assembly (HIRA).

LtCol, ret (USA) Lee is married with two grown daughters.  He holds an Engineering Degree from the United States Military Academy at West Point and a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from Central Michigan University. Lee served in the US Army as an airborne-Ranger qualified Armor office with two Pentagon tours with the Joint Chiefs of Staff.


The National Federation of Republican Assemblies is a conservative, grassroots organization committed to free market principles, individual responsibility, lower taxes and regulation, defense of traditional marriage and protection of the unborn.  Ronald Reagan called the Republican Assemblies "the conscience of the Republican Party," while others have called them "the Tea Party before there was a Tea Party."
