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.
