MAKANI CHRISTENSEN (D) CANDIDATE FOR U.S. SENATE ANNOUNCES ENDORSEMENT FROM 3-TIME OLYMPIAN AND SILVER MEDALIST

July 15, 2016, Honolulu, HI—Locally Grown, Combat Veteran, Business Owner, and Ocean Expert, Makani Christensen announced today that he received an endorsement from Three Time Olympian and Silver Medalist, Bill Schuffenhauer, “My experience with Makani has always been positive. I respect and admire him. I’m confident that he will always place the needs of the people of Hawaii before his own. That is the type of quality leader Makani embodies and Hawaii needs. He risked his life for our great country and I know he will do the same for his home, Hawaii.”

“I am honored and privileged to receive Bill’s support as he does so much for our country as an American Olympic Ambassador. In fact, the International Olympic Committee spent a week with Bill at his home in Utah as they’re preparing a film to be released with the upcoming Olympic Games in Rio. I know it must have been a difficult process for the IOC to select a couple Olympians, and Bill represented our great country, USA. Thank you Bill for your support.”
