Lingle, Hirono each raised about $1 million in past three months

By Star-Advertiser staff


Former Gov. Linda Lingle raised more than $1.1 million during the past three months for her Republican campaign for U.S. Senate, while Democratic U.S. Rep. Mazie Hirono raised more than $941,000 in that period, their respective campaigns announced today.

Hirono has raised a total of $3.2 million during this two-year election cycle and has $2 million in cash on hand, her campaign announced.

Lingle's quarterly figure, which covers fundraising through June, was slightly less than the $1.3 million Lingle raised during the first three months of the year. Lingle has collected more than $4.2 million overall.

U.S. Rep. Mazie Hirono and former congressman Ed Case, the Democratic candidates for U.S. Senate, have not released their latest campaign-finance figures, which are due this weekend. Hirono had raised more than $2.5 million through March.

"People from across the state have put their faith and trust in me because they know I will bring executive and common-sense leadership to our nation's capital to make the difficult decisions Congress has delayed for too long," Lingle said in a statement. "The easy decisions have already been made; it's the tough ones that must be made beginning in January when the new 113th Congress convenes.  And, as I continue to say, 'these are not Democrat or Republican problems we must overcome; they are American problems.'"
