    money cannot buy an election - you have to earn it, which you have not and you will find out on primary election day.

    hope ur right # 1

    Money usually makes the difference in elections... Not always but usually... 3mil of ads on TV MAKE A HUGE IMPRESSION... Especially on people who aren't focusing on politics day to day...

    It's why incumbents virtually always win... No one gets to know their opponents...

    To be honest, I like the governor's hustle. He's not taking it for granted that he'll be voted in. Unlike his opponent who is invisible, seemingly assuming he can coast in. Does the senator even have a plan? To risky if you ask me!

    The most expensive marionette
    gets the most donation. The puppet master
    gets to pull their strings. Senator Ige is more of
    a real person since less strings being pulled.

    Never borrow money from a friend. They own you.

    The governor has to hustle because polls indicated that he would lose the election if he didn't. Sen Ige has not been able to raise enough money to start advertising; but he is working hard for every vote. Gov Abercrombie position is improving. Hustling isn't a profile in courage...it's hustling. Credit the Gov with responding to a difficult political situation. Credit Sen Ige with making this a competitive race and doing so without a lot of money and resources.

    Alot can be said with two cents than thousands.
