A top real estate developer -- Duncan MacNaughton -- is hosting a fundraiser for U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz featuring New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg as the special guest.
The $1,000 per person evening reception is set for Jan. 2 at MacNaughton's Kahala home.
Bloomberg, a self-made billionaire, won two terms as New York mayor as a Republican and one as an independent while becoming a national voice on gun control and healthy nutrition. He is leaving office this month because he is barred by term limits from seeking a fourth term.
Schatz is facing U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa in the Democratic primary for U.S. Senate to fill out the remainder of the late U.S. Sen. Daniel Inouye's term, which runs through 2016.
