Party planning

October 30th, 2012

National Republican groups have provided some financial support in October to help the state GOP prepare for the election.

The National Republican Congressional Committee, which helps elect Republicans to the House, has sent over $81,000, according to the state GOP’s most recent federal campaign-finance report.

Target State Victory Fund, a joint fundraising group, contributed another $62,800, for more than $126,650 overall.

And the Republican National Committee chipped in $29,500, for $49,500 overall.

The party groups have not directly sponsored television advertising for former Gov. Linda Lingle, who is running for U.S. Senate, and former congressman Charles Djou, who is running for U.S. House. Both Republicans are campaigning as bipartisan candidates who would be independent if elected.

The Democratic National Committee, meanwhile, has sent more than $107,800 to Hawaii Democrats for the election.

    Might be a bit too little, too late. The RNC hasn’t exactly made it a secret that Hawaii’s not exactly on their short or long priority lists.

    Still, if it’s enough for the Donkeys to lose their pantaloons in public, might be a funny sight[!]

    Then again, this could be the galvanizing event to have all running in a group pic’ that doesn’t involve a breakfast. Should make a TV commercial with remaining campaign funds not yet used for 2012, have it start out w/non running politician, like papa Abercrombie, appear in front of the state capitol, look like the streets are empty, start yelling out names, “Ben?! Ben? Where are you? No shame, bring Kirk with you!!!! Mazie!!!! Mazie, come on now, you not crazy! . . . ” call all names of major D’s running and they can join hands to a happy ending cinematic tune. You know they want to do it anyways.

    There going be changes on Nov. 6. Don’t be lazy. Don’t be crazy. Vote. And get ready to boo hoo, some of you, ahhaahahahahahah!!!!
