Lt. Gov. Shan Tsutsui is out with a new television ad in his election campaign.
The 30-second spot features former U.S. Sen. Daniel Akaka:
"What I appreciate most is that we share the same values: honesty, integrity, caring for others. He embodies the best of the aloha spirit."
The full ad:
Tsutsui , the former president of the state Senate, ascended to the lieutenant governor's position following the appointment of his predecessor, Brian Schatz, to the U.S. Senate to replace U.S. Sen. Daniel Inouye, who died in December 2012.
