Cynthia Thielen

Cynthia Thielen, is a Republican member of the Hawaii House of Representatives and was the Republican nominee for United States Senate in 2006, challenging incumbent Democrat Daniel Akaka. She lost to Akaka, 62% to 38%, in the general election.

Thielen was born in Los Angeles, California, on Sept. 22, 1933, and attended Stanford University, Case Western Reserve University, and the University of Hawaii, graduating with a degree in law. She is a founding member of the Law Review.
