A total of 17 delegates and three superdelegates from Hawaii are taking part in this week’s Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla.

The three superdelegates are state GOP Chairman David Chang, RNC National Committeeman Ted Liu and National Committeewoman Miriam Hellreich.

The 17 delegates are pledged proportionally to specific Republican candidates based on the results of the state party’s first presidential caucus held in March. There are nine Mitt Romney delegates, five Rick Santorum delegates and three Ron Paul delegates.

Fritz Rohlfing was chosen as chairman and Erin Kealoha Fale vice chairwoman, based on their positions for the Romney campaign in Hawaii

In all, more than 80 people are traveling with the delegation, including alternates, guests and support staff, Fale said.

    The RNC convention organizers have apparently moved the delegations around in anticipation there may be an outbreak of spontaneous democracy inside the convention. Delegations with large numbers of Ron Paul and Santorum delegates have been moved to the nosebleed sections, out of sight of the TV cameras. They have been replaced by delegations from the territories. An added benefit will be the brown faces in those delegations, something in big demand when the GOP national convention is almost entirely lily-white.

    Will any Hawaii delegates exercise theri free speech at the convention, or will they be loyal, compliant Romneybots? Lingle, of course, saw no advantage in being linked with the national Republican Party in the minds of Hawaii voters. So she is staying far away from Tampa. She has said she disagrees wit hte Republican platform, which would ban all abortions, including in cases of rape or incest, as well as in vitro fertilization, some common birth control methods. But her “independence” is of the sort that she is unwilling to actually speak up in the “Lion’s Den” of the national convention and resist the crazy passions sweeping through her party. If she were elected to the Senate, would she speak up there, or would she also remain silent? Issuing a press release is one thing. Actually standing up to them and explaining, in rational, but clear terms, why they are wrong, is another,

    Didn’t know either party were made of Buddhist. I thought most were unethical and atheist. Everybody doing the “Limbo”. Neither would care about living in a DOMAtheri.

    I bet you didn’t know that China donated to the republican party.
