Case reports campaign finances, trails opponent Hirono

LAST UPDATED: 03:23 p.m. HST, Jan 31, 2012


Former U.S. Rep. Ed Case raised more than $111,800 during the last quarter for his Democratic primary campaign for the U.S. Senate, which put him far behind the pace of his rival, U.S. Rep. Mazie Hirono, who raised more than $624,350.

Case has raised more than $467,000 for his campaign since last spring, while Hirono has collected about $1.5 million.

"I said when we started that we'd need at least $1 million through the primary. We're on track to exceed that, and that's before we include the upsurge in January contributions as voters focus on their choice and new polls show us leading the primary and the general match-ups," Case said in a statement.

Former Gov. Linda Lingle, the Republican contender for Senate, raised more than $1.7 million for the quarter, the first test of her fundraising strength since she announced her campaign in October.

Hirono or Case will come in double digits above Lingle. Hawaii will not forget, no matter how much mainland donor money is spent on image consultants. If there is one thing Hawaii people do best is give people a chance, then remember when they blow it. Lingle hurt everybody.

Here is a clean poll: "The automated telephone survey of 1,358 likely voters found Case has a 13 percentage point margin over Lingle, 46 percent to 33 percent. Hirono has a 7 percentage point margin, 46 percent to 39 percent. In each case, roughly 20 percent of likely voters said they were either undecided or would pick another candidate.The poll was conducted on January 18 and 19, and has a margin of error of /- 2.7 percent." (Civil Beat/MRG)........When it goes Party vs. Party in November; DOUBLE DIGITS !

Hirono was one of the very few that voted against authorizing the wars. She's also one of the very few that voted against Bush's tax cuts for the rich. Her votes, unpopular at the time, sure are looking pretty smart now.
