WASHINGTON, D.C. > > Senator Daniel Inouye released a statement this afternoon on the retirement of Senator Akaka.

"I want to thank Senator Akaka for his service to Hawaii and the nation.  For nearly four decades, first in the House of Representatives and then in the Senate, Senator Akaka has fought hard for the people of Hawaii.  He is a tireless advocate for Hawaii’s residents and a true ambassador of Aloha.  He has been a willing and loyal partner and we have worked very well together over these many years. We have much more to do and I look forward to working with him over the next two years.  Kanieala, thank you for your friendship and unwavering support. Irene and I wish you and Millie all the best in your future endeavors."
