Lingle, Hirono debate after 1-day break


U.S. Senate contenders Linda Lingle and Mazie Hirono are debating in front of a statewide television audience for the second time in three days.

A debate tonight on PBS marks the second of three debates in seven days in the race to replace U.S. Sen. Daniel Akaka, who is retiring.

U.S. Rep. Hirono has spent much of the campaign focusing on Lingle’s ties to national Republicans.

Lingle is trying to convince voters of her bipartisan leadership abilities.

During a debate on Tuesday, Lingle said she differs from Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on immigration and his approach to China.

Hirono says her values as a Democrat are more in line with Hawaii and President Barack Obama.
