Cynthia Thielen on Principles & Values

 


Appointed as nominee because GOP primary winner withdrew

Gov. Linda Lingle made a pragmatic choice in tapping veteran Republican moderate Cynthia Thielen to carry the party banner in the general election race for US Senate. The most Republican votes in the primary went to candidate Jerry Coffee, who already had withdrawn from the race, giving the governor a rare opportunity to appoint the party's contender instead. If the GOP had been further along in its efforts to build a larger presence in Hawai'i, there might have been an up-and-comer the party could have offered up. Given these difficult circumstances, it's logical that longtime state Rep. Cynthia Thielen, R-50th (Kailua, Mokapu), would be seen as capable to fill the role. Thielen, well established and popular in her Windward district, has a solid centrist platform that fits nicely beneath the governor's moderate Republican umbrella. Besides, she's running unopposed in the general election, so her state House seat is safe.
