Good News For Hawaii Republicans?

September 27, 2011

Jonah Kaauwai, the embattled head of Hawaii's Republican Party resigned Monday, bringing to end what was a rocky tenure for the state party under the watch of a man whose brand of conservatism and fundraising problems caused headaches for many Republicans. His decision removes an obstacle for the party's current and prospective federal candidates in 2012 -- particularly former Gov. Linda Lingle. The Honolulu Star Advertiser:

The factionalism that led to Kaauwai's departure is another blot on a party that has fought to stay relevant in a traditionally Democratic state. But if Kaauwai's ouster does end the infighting and Republicans are able to unite, the party has the potential to be competitive next year with Lingle and Djou, which could also help Republicans in state House and Senate races.

Lingle is still weighing a Senate bid and Djou is running in HI-01.
