Hawaii's two Democratic candidates for U.S. Senate will appear jointly at five events before the primary election in August.

U.S. Rep. Mazie Hirono released a debate and joint forum schedule Thursday, detailing the events she will appear at with her opponent, former U.S. Rep. Ed Case.

Case issued a press release criticizing the congresswoman for not also agreeing to debates sponsored by the state's leading television networks and the Honolulu Star-Advertiser.

Hirono's campaign responded that the events she will appear at include one debate on a neighbor island and another on Hawaii Public Radio. The candidates will also appear in a televised forum on PBS Hawaii.

Hirono's finance chairwoman Jadine Nielsen says the campaign believes it is providing voters with ample opportunity to consider Hirono and Case's records.
