GOProud Endorses Charles Djou (R) in Hawaii’s 1st  Congressional District

 Jimmy LaSalvia, Executive Director “Charles Djou is a limited government, free market conservative who supports policies that will improve the lives of all of the people of Hawaii, including gays and lesbians.”

 (Washington, D.C.) – Today, GOProud the only national organization representing gay conservatives and their allies, announced their board voted unanimously to endorse Republican Congressional candidate Charles Djou in Hawaii’s 1st Congressional District.  “Charles Djou is a limited government, free market conservative who supports policies that will improve the lives of all the people of Hawaii, including gays and lesbians,” said Jimmy LaSalvia, Executive Director of GOProud.

GOProud’s Executive Director, along with the Board’s Chairman, met with Djou in Washington last week.  “Charles Djou is an impressive candidate who will make a tremendous member of Congress,” continued LaSalvia.  “Charles opposes Democratic efforts to expand discriminatory government run healthcare, supports lowering taxes on all Americans, supports repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, understands the importance of fighting global extremism and opposes any effort to federalize marriage through a Constitutional amendment.”

“I want to thank GOProud for their endorsement of my campaign for Congress,” said Djou.  “I want to be a Congressman all of the people of Hawaii – including gays and lesbians – can be proud of.” 

Djou faces two Democrats in the vote by mail special election which begins on April 30th and concludes on May 22nd.  This election will fill the seat of former U.S. Rep. Neal Abercrombie (D-HI).

  1. He is totally the real deal. I’m glad GOProud endorses him, and he has my support as well.

  2. Support for gay marriage is NOT a conservative position. It’s a socially LIBERAL position and I’m sick and tired of this effort to confuse things. Mr. Djou may indeed have a lot of economically conservative ideas but from what I’ve read on this post he’s socially liberal on gay issues, at least. It seems the effort to drive traditional values out of conservatism and leave those values without a voice in the culture is working. And that’s sad.

  4. Seane-Anna, you appear to be lost… I don’t know if you realize this, but you’ve landed on a gay website.

  5. I am with Seane-Anna on this.

    (Charles Djou) supports policies that will improve the lives of all of the people of Hawaii, including gays and lesbians.”

    Repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell and opposing any effort to federalize marriage through a Constitutional amendment are not proven “policies that will improve the lives of all of the people of Hawaii.” In no way has repeal of DA/DT been shown to improve the military mission, nor has any compelling state interest been articulated for a general improvement of society as a whole as a result of permitting gay marriage.

    Those issues are largely special interest policies to an unknown portion of voters who are gay.

    Beyond these two issues, what is the “gay agenda” and what differentiates the Gay Patriots from the Gay lefties?

    If Charles Djou is to be elected, he needs to put his emphasis on the issues that most concern the voters and the campaign donors. As a conservative who has been a life long Republican, I can very likely accept his credentials and support him. But, I am not about to get mired down with a candidate who is stuck on putting issues of social liberalism ahead of what ails us.
