Advocacy Groups

HawaiiConCon.info Comment: Opponents tend to fit into one of three groups: 1) Legislators (especially legislative leadership) 2) Interest groups that have invested heavily in influencing the Legislature (e.g., Big Labor and Big Business), and 3) Long-time coalition allies who trade favors with 1) and 2) (in politics, effective groups need powerful and reliable allies). Supporters tend to be media outlets and good government advocates (see media coverage of the referendum). In recent decades in both Hawaii and other states, no advocates have had many times the money and organizational resources as yes advocates.
