Republican U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona was announced Monday as the keynote speaker for next month's Lincoln Dinner held annually by the Hawaii Republican Party.

The dinner is scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 19 at the Ko`olau Ballrooms in Kaneohe.

In a news release, Hawaii GOP Chairwoman Pat Saiki said:

"We are honored to have Senator Flake as our speaker.  Having attended BYU, he is very familiar with our islands, our people and our customs. He can be a strong spokesman for Hawaii in the Republican majority in the U.S. Senate."

The state party noted Flake sits on committees that can impact Hawaii’s needs and concerns, including Energy and Natural Resources, Judiciary and Foreign Relations and the subcommittee dealing with matters affecting East Asia and the Pacific.

The Lincoln Dinner is an annual fundraiser for the state GOP.

    Smart move. The party of angry mainland haoles brings as their speaker an angry mainland haole. That'll do it!

    This dinner honors the same Abe Lincoln who wanted about corporations taking control of the federal government?

    Senator Flake has been the beneficiary of some shadowy corporate suppress money. A mysterious group, American Commitment spent a cool million bucks helping his last campaign. More info on the group:


    Abe Lincoln must be rolling in his grave over the things today's Republicans are doing in his name.

    Arizona, the state where the angry whites stop Hispanics on the street to demand their papers. A real "freedom-loving bunch," Arizona anglos. We need more clueless white bullies in Hawaii. A winning strategy for Hawaii's floundering Republican Party.

    Typo: "Abe Lincoln who WARNED about corporations..."
