Mitt Romney: Stand With Me, Hawaii’s Special Election

I like Mitt Romney’s tech savviness.

I like the 140-characters-or-less tweets he regularly sends to share his schedule, news, or thoughts.

I like his staccato tap-on-the-shoulder electronic notes that dart into our days to let us know when he needs a little help - a sort of cyber-space Romney reveille.  So, it was with curiosity that I read a tweet from him yesterday evening: “Stand with Me: We Must Redouble Our Efforts”

Romney’s message:

Stand with Me: We Must Redouble Our Efforts

Tuesday’s elections are over but the hard work continues.

The November midterm elections will be here before we know it, and we need to do everything we can to ensure that we have the resources to win. With your generous support of $35, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1,000, $2,500, or even the maximum $5,000 today, we can continue to fight to cut out wasteful spending, keep taxes low and defeat liberal attempts to grow the size of government.

But we don’t even need to wait until November to send another Republican to Congress. In just a few days, there is a special election being held in Hawaii’s First Congressional District, and Republican Charles Djou has a strong chance of winning — in a district that voted overwhelmingly for President Obama in 2008.

My PAC has been working extremely hard on behalf of Charles Djou, and your generosity has enabled us not only to send him direct monetary support, but also to raise funds directly for his campaign to ensure he has the resources he needs to win. A victory in Hawaii will set the stage for more conservative victories in November’s all-important midterm elections.

We have an historic opportunity this year to send a message of fiscal restraint and conservatism to all the big spenders in Washington. Will you stand with me by making a generous contribution to my PAC of $35, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1,000, $2,500, or even the maximum $5,000 today? Your support will ensure that we have the resources we need to elect more conservative candidates throughout the country this November.

(emphasis mine)

We’ve received a ‘redouble our efforts’ reveille call to action. Stand with Governor Romney. Give generously! Info on where to send contributions here.


Just two days until the special mail-in election (May 22) in Honolulu, HI. Former congressman Neil Abercrombie (D-HI) leaves an open seat because he resigned to run for governor. Romney-endorsed Republican Charles Djou is running against two Democrats: state senate President Colleen Hanabusa and former 2nd District Congressman Ed Case. If Djou wins, he will become only the second Republican to represent Hawaii in the House. Read more about Charles Djou’s impressive background here.

Djou on Hannity April 21, 2010:

Djou: “My candidacy is built on a very simple premise. I understand every single dollar that the government spends comes from a family like yours.” 

You may have heard that this congressional seat is in Obama’s hometown district. Go Djou!

UPDATE 5/21/10: Campaigners for Djou have been rising early in the mornings to wave campaign signs on major highways in Honolulu. Many thanks to the Sunrise Crew, the Pau Hana Crew and the Mililani Crew. Here is video of the Mililani Crew waving signs in rainy Mililani May 21, 2022 (Charles Djou is the man in front, with black umbrella):

Pomaika’I tomorrow! (good luck)

Mitt Romney: Help Elect Conservatives and Receive ‘No Apology’ T-Shirt

A message from Mitt Romney:

Mitt Romney on book tourLast week, I launched the national tour for my new book, No Apology: The Case for American Greatness, and I must admit — it feels good to be on the road again.

The tour has already taken me to cities in New York, Massachusetts, Georgia, Florida, and Michigan, as well as to Washington, DC. And by the time it’s over, I’ll have visited dozens of cities in 19 states.

It’s been great reconnecting with old friends and making new ones as I travel across the country talking about our shared conservative values — that a competitive America is one where taxes are low and government is small, that our military superiority must never be compromised, that our cultural values need to be cherished and that unleashing the power of the free market is key to our economic future.

I hope to see you at one of my upcoming book events so that you can join this important dialogue, but even if you can’t be there in person, I hope you will stand with me in helping to make our conservative message heard.

As you know, this is a crucial midterm election year. All 435 Congressional seats, one third of the U.S. Senate, 37 Governorships, and control of numerous state legislatures are at stake. With your generous financial support of $25, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1,000, $2,500, or even the maximum $5,000, to my PAC, we’ll have the resources to spread our message and elect conservative candidates throughout the country.

Mitt Romney book tour shirtsAnd, for a limited time, if you contribute at least $50, we’ll send you the official No Apology 2010 Book Tour t-shirt as a token of our appreciation (select your size below) . This much sought after, limited edition item is the same t-shirt worn by my staff and volunteers at our book events, and I’d be honored to have you wear it too as a key member of my team. And as an added bonus, the first 100 people who contribute at least $100 will receive their t-shirt signed.

I hope you will stand with me in these critical months ahead. With you by my side, I am sure that America will continue to be — as it always has been — a force for good like no other in this world. And for that, I make no apology.
