RGA Welcomes Duke Aiona to the Hawaii Governor's Race

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Republican Governors Association Chairman Chris Christie issued the following statement regarding Duke Aiona’s announcement he will enter the Hawaii governor’s race:

“Duke Aiona’s entry into this year’s race for governor is good news for Hawaii voters. After nearly four years of Neil Abercrombie’s weak leadership and poor stewardship of taxpayer dollars, Aiona offers voters a strong alternative to Abercrombie and a fresh vision for the state’s future. A trusted, accomplished leader, Aiona has a proven record of success to build on; he knows what it will take to restore accountability in government and preserve the Aloha State’s tradition as a place where opportunity and prosperity are available to all. The Republican Governors Association welcomes Duke Aiona to the Hawaii governor’s race.”
