Urge Hawai'i Governor Neil Abercrombie to Appoint Roseanne Barr as Interim U.S. Senator from Hawai'i

Hawai'i Governor Neil Abercrombie MUST appoint local Hawai'i farmer, job creator and former Presidential candiate Roseanne Barr to the United States Senate to succeed the late Senator Daniel Inouye. Roseanne Barr is a proven champion for the rights of women, gays, immigrants, minorities and the American worker. In the U.S. Senate, she will fight for job creation, human rights, as well as criminal and economic justice. Roseanne is also well known for her advocacy in support of animals, a safe, sustainable food supply and access to affordable education and health care for all.  Throughout her career, Roseanne Barr has demonstrated the leadership skills needed to represent the State of Hawai'i as its next United States Senator.

Hawaii Governor
We urge you to consider Roseanne Barr for nomination as an applicant for filling the midterm vacancy in the U.S. Senate left by the passing of the President Pro Tem of the Senate, the Honorable Senator Daniel Inouye. We acknowledge the outstanding service and sacrifice Senator Inouye gave to his country in the United States military as well as in the U.S. Senate. Hawaiians have a great deal to be grateful for as they lay this hero and national treasure to rest.

As a Hawai'i farmer, business owner, and job creator who ran for President in 2012, Roseanne Barr is prepared to honor Senator Inouye's memory and serve in his tradition of honesty and integrity. As a candidate, Ms. Barr also offers the Party certain unique advantages, including name recognition with which to hold her seat in the 2014 elections, a passion for women's rights and the rights of oppressed minorities, and a drive to get things done in Washington. Because of her professional success in the entertainment industry, Ms. Barr is also in a position of financial security where she will not be beholden to the big money influence of private interest groups. And with a shortage of capable women in the U.S. Senate Chamber, Hawai'i and the nation need Roseanne Barr's voice more now than ever.

As you deliberate over the names to succeed Senator Inouye, we urge you to give serious consideration to Ms. Roseanne Barr as the next United States Senator from the great state of Hawai'i.
