While U.S. Senate Candidate Linda Lingle has been busy campaigning and fundraising around the state, a hungry thief broke into her Hilo campaign headquarters.

Corrie Heck, a spokesperson for Lingle’s campaign, confirmed Lingle’s Hilo headquarters was burglarized last night.

The thief – or thieves – took food left there for volunteers as well as a television and a drill and some chargers.

The campaign filed a report with the Hawaii County Police Department, Heck said.

Lingle is a former Republican governor and candidate for U.S. Senate running. She will face off against Congresswoman Mazie Hirono, D-HI, on November 6.
