REPORT FROM LINGLE’S US SENATE CAMPAIGN – The Majority PAC, a national Democrat political hit group focused solely on maintaining control of the U.S. Senate, has dropped tens of thousands of dollars in television ads in an attempt to sway the election for Hawaii’s open U.S. Senate seat.
“This will make the fifth group that has come into Hawaii on Hirono’s behalf, slinging negative attack ads as a last-ditch effort to prop her campaign up in the final four days. When a candidate like Hirono has no record to run on, she must attack accomplished leaders like Linda Lingle at all costs,” said Campaign Manager Bob Lee.

“It’s very obvious that Hirono’s campaign and her mainland operatives see the same polling numbers we do: that the U.S. Senate race is a statistical dead heat. Hirono has painted her campaign as a bastion of local, grassroots support. However, when she welcomes extremely partisan mainland PACs into our State at the last minute to fuel her one-party advertising message, her actions speak louder than words.  The truth is Hirono’s campaign is fueled by hyper-partisan PACs who are focused exclusively on their political party keeping control,” Lee added.

“Hirono and her partisan mainland operatives view Hawaii’s U.S. Senate seat as one pawn in a national political party strategy.  However, Linda Lingle views this election and the opportunity to serve in the U.S. Senate as a chance to do what is right for the people of Hawaii, not for her political party,” Lee concluded.
