Official filing of candidacy with the Hawaii State Elections Commission
On May 19th, 2022, Retired U.S. Marine, Tim Dalhouse, turned in his formal filing papers to run in the upcoming U.S. Senate race at the Kailua-Kona satellite office of the Hawaii State Elections Commission. The Senate seat, currently filled by the incumbent Democrat, Brian Schatz is up for reelection in the 2022 midterm elections.
Tim is running as a Republican candidate and believes he has a shot at winning and helping to bring back government of, by and for the people in Washington, DC.
“The tide is turning in Hawaii as more and more voters realize the policies of past and present Democrats in office are failing our country.”
Although Tim is a Republican candidate, he realizes he needs to win over Democrat voters to be successful in the State of Hawaii and he embraces that. Tim wants to create an environment of collaboration and unity among all Hawaiians to reach real solutions that integrate all of our diverse perspectives on the very complex issues facing the U.S. Congress.
“Extremist positions on very complex issues, whether they be from the left or the right, are not helpful nor conducive to solutions that respect and honor the value of diverse opinions across the aisle."
Tim applied for his nomination papers online on May 16th and set to work collecting the needed 25 signatures of registered voters to nominate him for the U.S. Senate election. Two days later, he had collected 38 signatures turned them into the State Elections Office, signed the filing papers, paid the $75 filing fee, and did the required audio recording of his candidate name. When the elections official expressed surprise at how quickly Tim got 38 signatures, he replied, "Hawaii voters are ready for a change"!
Tim hopes to bring back government of, by, and for the people by bridging the gap between extremist positions on both sides and collaborating on real solutions that work to solve our country's toughest challenges.
