For politicians, the fundraising never really stops. Lt. Gov. Brian Schatz, elected with Gov. Neil Abercrombie in November, collected about $59,900 from January through June for the 2014 re-election campaign.
According to state campaign-finance reports, the largest source of donations — $25,000 — came from executives at Mitsunaga & Associates, an engineering firm that was a major supporter of Abercrombie’s campaign and inauguration.
Schatz spent about $39,500, including $30,00 in repaid or forgiven loans from his father, Irwin.
