Equality Hawaii Action Fund, the main interest group behind the campaign for marriage equality in Hawaii last year, has endorsed U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz.
Schatz is facing U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa in the Democratic primary.
"In the end, our decision came down to a question of who would step out in front, who would lead on our issues, and we have no doubt Brian Schatz will continue to do that for us in the U.S. Senate,” Kory Rosette, who serves on the group's board, said in a statement. “But we are pleased to note that both Sen. Schatz and Rep. Hanabusa are supporters of marriage equality, bullying prevention, and so many other issues that are important to us and our community."
