Kasich for America Files to Appear on Hawaii Ballot

News Release from Kasich for America

On Friday, Governor John Kasich's presidential campaign filed the necessary paperwork to appear on the Hawaii Republican primary ballot and announced its Hawaii leadership team.

Former congressman Charles Djou will serve as chair of Gov. Kasich's Hawaii leadership team.

Said Djou, "Voters are looking for a leader with a proven history of producing results. John Kasich is that leader. He has a constructive, realistic plan to turn the economy around and strengthen our national security. He has the experience and talent to bring unity to America in a time of deep division."

Djou represented Hawaii's 1st congressional district from 2010 to 2011. He has also served in the State House of Representatives and on the Honolulu City Council.

Marilia Duffles and Jon Kunimura also joined the governor's leadership team as state co-chairs.

Said Governor Kasich, "I look forward to continuing to build upon our strong team in Hawaii as we approach the Republican caucus in March. Charles Djou has a deep understanding of what matters to voters in Hawaii and will be a great asset to our team as we expand our ground operations."


Gov. Kasich is running for President to help Americans restore our nation, live in safety and pass on prosperity to those who come after us—and he’s got the experience to help us do it. He was reelected last year by a 30-point margin after working with his fellow Ohioans to turn an $8 billion shortfall into a $2 billion surplus, cut taxes $5 billion and create more than 300,000 new private sector jobs.  As chair of the Budget Committee in Congress he led the effort to balance the federal budget for the first time in a generation and served 18 years on the House Armed Services Committee where he helped enact President Reagan's national security agenda.  He has also had a successful career as an investment banker, New York Times best-selling author and at FOX News.  He and his wife Karen have twin teenage daughters and live in their home outside Columbus.
