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.
