Chipping in

July 6th, 2012

Working Families for Hawaii, a labor-friendly political action committee, has purchased $35,600 in radio advertising on behalf of U.S. Rep. Mazie Hirono’s Democratic primary campaign for U.S. Senate.

The buy is the first independent spending on behalf of Hirono so far in the campaign. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has spent about $500,000 in television ads on behalf of former Gov. Linda Lingle, the leading Republican candidate.

Working Families for Hawaii backed U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa, D-Hawaii, with advertising in 2010.

    Who can be bought for 30 pieces of silver? Paying for a candidate is like buying an
    expensive marionette. Most are made of wood. Cut their strings and you finally have a real person.
