Hirono's Senate campaign raises $624,000 in three months

By Star-Advertiser staff


U.S. Rep. Mazie Hirono raised more than $624,000 during the past three months for her Democratic primary for U.S. Senate, her campaign announced today.

The campaign's performance since October was double the amount Hirono raised in the previous quarter. Hirono, who faces former congressman Ed Case in the primary  to replace retiring U.S. Sen. Daniel Akaka, D-Hawaii, has collected about $1.5 million in total.

The quarterly reports are due at the end of January, but Hirono released her report early. 

Former Gov. Linda Lingle, the leading Republican candidate, has said she could raise $8 million to $10 million.

"Nobody thinks this campaign is going to be easy -- especially considering our potential Republican opponent's vast national fundraising network," Betsy Lin, Hirono's campaign manager, said in a statement. "But our impressive year-end numbers give us all the more confidence that the depth and breadth of our grassroots support from working families all across Hawaii will ultimately prevail."
