Hirono Controlled by Special Interests, Case said
Former Congressman Ed Case, (D-Hi, 2002-2007), who is in a heated U.S. Senate primary race against Congresswoman Mazie Hirono, D-HI, said yesterday his opponent is raising her war chest from DC insider special interest PACs and other political committees.
Hirono has received $700,000 in this campaign, and over $2 million, almost a third of all of her contributions, over her career from DC, Case said, while he has received a little over $10,000 in this campaign and just 8% over his career with the rest of his support coming from local people.
Case maintains following the money shows he is independent, while Hirono takes marching orders from the “DC-centered status quo special interests.”
The two will face off on Thursday, July 26, beginning at 6:30 p.m. on Hawaii News Now.
