Bloomberg to appear at Schatz fundraiser in Kahala

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 03:23 p.m. HST, Dec 03, 2013

Real estate developer Duncan MacNaughton is hosting a fundraiser for U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz featuring outgoing New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg as the special guest.

The $1,000-per-person evening reception is set for Jan. 2 at MacNaughton's Kahala home.

Bloomberg, a self-made billionaire, won two terms as New York mayor as a Republican and one as an independent while becoming a national voice on gun control and healthy nutrition. He is leaving office this month because he is barred by term limits from seeking a fourth term.

Schatz is facing U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa in the Democratic primary for U.S. Senate to fill out the remainder of the late U.S. Sen. Daniel Inouye's term, which runs through 2016.

Who cares who endorses Schatz or Hanabusa?

I expect Bllomberg is bringing bags full of that New York City money to dump in Schatz's coffers to help buy the Hawaii election.

Bloomberg never took money for his campaigns--he used his own money. But I am surprised that he backs Schatz????

Who is the "genius" who came up with idea for us to call Brian Schatz and thank him for backing an energy bill? Really? We need to thank him for DOING HIS JOB!? Forget that. He should call each and every one of us and thank us for giving him a high paying position with great medical, great retirement and 1 million a year for him to pay his staff. What a D...A..

Now there is a good reason NOT TO VOTE FOR SCHATZ. If Bloomberg likes him he must be bad for Hawai`i.

The Tea Party stands for smaller government, reducing the national debt, reducing the federal budget deficit by reducing spending and taxes. What is wrong with that? Schatz' latest TV ads have him promoting green energy and opposing the Tea Party. What is wrong with Schatz?

Shame on Duncan MacNaughton for being so disrespectful to the late U.S. Sen. Daniel Inouye and his widow.

I think that Senator Brian Schatz is doing a great job and I hope that he keeps his seat regardless of who else supports him. At 41 Brian is the second youngest Senator in the Senate which means he will head a lot more committees and he will have many more years in a seniority position of power in the Senate for the State of Hawaii. If you look at this link you will see that 24 senators are age 70 or older. There are only ten senators in their 40's. Colleen is 62 and we already have wonderful Senator Mazie Hirono at age 66 representing Hawaii.
