U.S. Rep. Mazie Hirono raised more than twice as much money as former Gov. Linda Lingle during the first three weeks of October in their U.S. Senate campaign.
Hirono, a Democrat, raised more than $460,000 between Oct. 1 and 17, according to her latest federal campaign finance report, and more than $5.1 million overall. Lingle, a Republican, brought in more than $206,600 during the same period and has collected more than $5.4 million overall.
Hirono, who leads Lingle in public opinion polls, has raised more money than Lingle in the past two reporting periods. Lingle had the clear fundraising advantage before the August primary.
