This year’s Lincoln Day Dinner was well attended with over 750 guests at the Hilton Coral Ballroom. The attendees were treated to a video featuring prominent Hawaii Republicans over the years. There were several interesting interviews and insights delivered by political veterans like Andrew Poepoe and Fred Rolfing. Hawaii’s two-term U.S. Congresswoman, Patricia Saiki, served as mistress of ceremonies for much of the evening.
The highlight of the evening was when all attendees under forty were asked to stand…they represented almost half of the audience. This is a terrific sign for the health and future of Hawaii’s Republicans.
