Randolph Crossley, (b.1904 - d.2004), businessman and member of the Republican Party, served in the territorial House of Representatives from Kauai in 1943 to 1945 and served as a senator in the Hawaii State Senate from 1959 to 1964.

In 1952, President Dwight D. Eisenhower chose Crossley as governor for Hawaii, but the president appointed Samuel W. King after political pressure surfaced.

Crossley ran for governor in 1966 with the support of former Vice President Richard Nixon and was defeated by Gov. John A. Burns by 4,720 votes.

In 1974, Crossley again ran for governor at age 70 and was defeated by Gov. George Ariyoshi.[1]
