Both the Hawaii Republican and Democratic parties held their 2006 political conventions this weekend. I attended the Republican convention as a delegate from our district.
Attending a political party convention is something you should do at least once in your life. These events are huge pep rallies for the party faithful and the Hawaii Republican Party convention was no exception.
The 3-day convention had the party faithful attending workshops and rallies on a number of topics including education, candidate training and policy making. The highlight of any convention are the colorful general session rallies. These are loud and pompous occasions where one can see and listen to some of their favorite candidates.
