Thank you to my family

I owe so much to my family and supporters who helped me win more votes than any Republican since statehood, who challenged a democrat running for reelection to the United States Senate.

My daughter and Campaign Manager, Laura H. Thielen, worked tirelessly to get our message out, showing we were running a serious campaign to win this race. My youngest son, Greg, handled the difficult Finance challenges, raising over a third of a Million Dollars in five and one-half weeks! This amazing accomplishment allowed us to be on television and radio state-wide. His wife, Laura E. Thielen helped with affordable and low income housing issues. Peter and his wife Shannon Thielen led the Kauai campaign and pulled in a respectable showing in that democrat stronghold. My oldest son, Dave, had our campaign web site up and running on day one of our six week campaign, and he and my grand daughter, Winter Maile kept us out in the blogosphere. Mickey did all of the leg work, so necessary to keep our campaign running.

We started our campaign for U.S. Senate on September 25. with no money, no office, no campaign materials. And our inexperienced, but strong and dedicated family group, pulled off amazing results in just six weeks. The people heard my call to move our nation off dependency on foreign oil and to develop our nation’s clean and safe renewable energy. Voters responded, and I am grateful for their support.

To them, and to my family, I send my sincere aloha.

Rep. Cynthia Thielen
Candidate for U.S. Senate 2006
