From Waianae to Washington

May 15th, 2014

U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa has a new radio advertisement that outlines her rise from Waianae to Washington, D.C.

The radio spot says the congresswoman learned about hard work and the spirit of Hawaii from her days growing up on the Leeward coast, where her family ran a service station.

"You know, a good living, a good education, a good job, a good home. Those aren't things that should belong only to the privileged and the fortunate," Hanabusa says in the ad. "That's what I'm fighting for in Washington."

Hanabusa, who is facing U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz in the Democrat primary, has yet to debut a television ad.

Schatz, who leads Hanabusa in fundraising, has so far aired three TV spots for his campaign.

    Terrific. She just admitted those four things ARE for the privileged and that it will take forever to make the changes to which she is referring.

    "I'm going there to engage in the 'more of the same' circus in D.C."

    I can't stand her smugness.

    Need new thinking. That is Schatz.

  2. Especially Incognito:

    Don't need one without breath and that
    doesn't have a Hawaii birth certificate
    to lead Hawaii..

    Seems this will lure those birthers..
    Best you have your birth cerficate ready..
