The real solution to the job crisis is to get big government out of the way and let American citizens thrive through economic liberty
Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) April 14, 2010
One of the first and largest political action committees born out of the tea party movement today announced its full support and endorsement of Charles Djou for Congress in the special election for Hawaii’s 1st Congressional District.
Liberty First PAC, the umbrella group for TaxDayTeaParty.com and the Patriot Caucus, is sending bloggers to Hawaii and plans a media blitz that includes online blog ads, radio ads and on-the-ground coverage for its email lists.
Tea party organizers behind the effort say Hawaii residents have a perfect opportunity to change the failed direction liberal Democrats wish to take the state, pointing to Charles Djou as the solution.
Charles Djou, a free-market advocate who has represented Honolulu’s city council for 8 years, has never voted for a tax increase, and strongly advocates business friendly representation that utilizes free enterprise as a driving force for job creation.
“The real solution to the job crisis is to get big government out of the way and let American citizens thrive through economic liberty,” said Eric Odom, Chairman of the PAC and a Las Vegas-based Tea Party Organizer. “Charles Djou embraces these ideas and his voting record speaks volumes about his ability to put liberty first when representing the people.”
The special election for Hawaii’s 1st Congressional District was recently deemed a “toss-up” race by political analyst Charles Cook, paving the way for a possible win for Charles Djou.
Odom said there will be a lot of momentum going in to May, and he anticipates more tea party movement activists will get involved in the final weeks of the election. “We raised $5,000 online as soon as we announced our involvement in the race, and our members are ready to begin making phone calls and spreading the word via social media,” said Odom.
