From Honolulu County Republican Party

March 15, 2024

Whew!!  This week wraps up about 3 months of intense preparation for our nearly 300 volunteers that supported 19 locations across Oahu for the Republican Presidential Caucus!  Our all-volunteer team had very diverse backgrounds including various ethnicities, religions, occupations, ages, income levels, method of obtaining citizenship, education levels, both genders, etc, all with shared goals in mind: to save America, to save Hawaii and to Preserve our Conservative Values!  JOB WELL DONE, TEAM!

Special thanks goes to Jackie Beckman, Honolulu County Caucus Coordinator for her tireless efforts in preparing us all for this key event!  Please join our County Committee meeting tomorrow at 12:30 in person at HQ or via Zoom to offer our thanks for her monumental achievement!

Our Regional Vice Chairs, Nolan Chang, Anna Hudson, Lanky Morrill, Wendy Balidoy and Teri Savaiinaea did a fabulous job as well!  This team of professionals were the first line in directly supporting the locations in their regions ensuring training, supplies, and updates were delivered in a timely manner!  GREAT JOB, RVCs!!

Our location at Mililani Waena topped the 300 mark, servicing 322 voters!  Pearl City, King and Campbell had 287, 259, and 226, respectively!  The remaining locations neared or exceeded 100 voters each!  A hat tip to each site leader for their intense preparation and to each teammate for being integral to our overall success!

Please provide your feedback and take the caucus survey at this link:

I’ve included some of the pictures received so far – keep them coming and we’ll publish them in future newsletters!  It’s absolutely amazing to see what we can accomplish when we Unify – Strengthen – Energize – and Win!

SA: Hawaii Republicans favor Donald Trump, ‘bigly,’ in party caucus  -- Andreas Helchinger, a 43-year-old Hawaiian Airlines pilot, also had never voted, but was in charge of the Kailua Intermediate caucus as a volunteer.  “I figured I need to be part of the process,” he said. “We need to have clean voter rolls.”

Star-Adv March 12, 2024 AM: Official results won’t be known until Wednesday, “hopefully Thursday the latest,” McKay said after neighbor island votes are flown in to Oahu to be counted.  An estimated 10,000 Republicans turned out for the 2012 caucus, followed by 15,000 in 2016. Because of COVID-19, the party suspended the 2020 caucus.  McKay hopes to see 30,000 voters…

Trump Campaign: Mahalo for Answering our Call to Action!

Dear Voters,    March 15, 2024

We hope this email finds you in high spirits. First and foremost, on behalf of the Trump Campaign, we want to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation for your unwavering support in the Hawaii Republican Presidential Caucus held on Tuesday night. Your presence and dedication made it a historical evening, one that solidified President Trump's position as the presumptive nominee for the Republican Party.

It was truly heartening to witness the overwhelming support for the Trump Campaign in Hawaii. The number of voters who turned out for Trump exceeded expectations, allowing him to earn 100% of Hawaii’s Republican Delegates. This remarkable achievement is a testament to the hard work of our campaign volunteers, who tirelessly spread the word about the caucus and ensured that the vote counts were handled with utmost accuracy.


We extend our heartfelt thanks to the voters who took the time to write to us, expressing their gratitude for our team's efforts in promoting the caucus and providing instruction. Your kind words and encouragement mean the world to us and serve as a motivation to continue working tirelessly to promote President Trump's candidacy.

A special Mahalo to the Hawaii Trump Campaign Committee and campaign volunteers for their unwavering dedication and commitment in making the caucus a resounding success. Their hard work behind the scenes truly paid off, helping us achieve a historic victory.

Notably, our campaign caucus observers reported an influx of new voters, indicating a clear momentum that favors President Trump leading up to the General Election. This positive trend, coupled with the remarkable surge in voter turnout, speaks volumes about the growing support for our campaign.


As we move forward, we will be taking our campaign to new heights with strategic planning and grassroots efforts along with Trump's national team. Despite the narrative that Hawaii's votes don't count, our caucus showcased the influence and potential impact of our state's voters. Hawaii Republicans showed up to support Trump with a turnout that was more than 60% higher than the number of Democrats who showed up for Biden in the Hawaii Democratic Party’s caucus just last week. Just envision the possibility of turning Hawaii red by winning the popular vote and its four electoral college votes in the upcoming General Election!


To make this vision a reality, we need your help. We are calling upon all supporters to join us in this movement to elect President Trump in November 2024. Please consider signing up HERE to become an active part of our campaign. Together, we can make a significant difference and ensure a brighter future for our great nation under Trump's leadership.


We would like to emphasize that all official campaign activities, announcements, including convoys, rallies, and fundraising events, will come directly from our official campaign channels. We want to ensure that you receive accurate and verified information. Therefore, any events not organized by this campaign should be considered unofficial.

Be sure to stay well-informed and connected with us through email, our official social media accounts, and other official media releases. We will keep you updated regarding official campaign events and initiatives, including how you can become a delegate at the Republican National Convention.

Once again, congratulations on this incredible win, and thank you for being an invaluable part of our movement. Together, we will achieve greatness.

With heartfelt gratitude,
The Committee for Donald J. Trump for President Hawaii Campaign
