By Log Cabin Republicans National Board Chairman Terry W. Hamilton


Log Cabin Republicans is proud to have endorsed the candidacy of Charles Djou for Congress.

His commitment to repeal of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’, supporting the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, increased HIV/AIDS research initiatives and equality in domestic partnership benefits on the federal level show that a common-sense Republican can truly win the day, even in President Obama’s home.

Charles Djou, a young Chinese-American from Hawaii, serves as a Captain in the Army Reserves and is a staunch opponent of the failed ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ policy, which prohibits gays and lesbians from serving openly in the military.

Djou fought for government transparency in Hawaii, supports market-based healthcare reform and tort reform, and has never voted for a tax increase.

Log Cabin Republicans promotes legislation to provide basic fairness for gay and lesbian Americans and works to build a more inclusive GOP.  The 30-year old organization has state and local chapters nationwide, a full-time office in Washington, DC, a federal political action committee and state political action committees.
