Former Gov. Linda Lingle is up with her first television advertisement in her Republican campaign for U.S. Senate. The spot portrays her as a bipartisan leader who will put people, not politics, first.

The Lingle ad follows a series of spots on her behalf by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce that has given her a media presence while much of the attention is on the Democratic primary between U.S. Rep. Mazie Hirono and former congressman Ed Case.

The Lingle campaign timed the ad to the debut of a new digital cable channel.

Check out the spot here.

    When lingle loses, she hopes to be the worlds next oprah.

    It seems a 1% can afford her own station and her own talk show. 1% are not about the 99% but themselves.. lingle cannot save jobs nor create unless she opens up a family business of selling used cars.

    A novel and smart idea in today’s fast-paced environment. It’s going to take more than shoe leather and sign waving to engage voters in today’s society. Meeting voters where they are, whether they are out at a craft fair, in their car, on their Facebook or on their TV, is what will win this election as meeting and communicating with voters where they are, is a reflection of a leader who is in touch with the people of Hawaii.

    This commercial is like a caricature of itself. Hmm, let me think what a political ad is supposed to look like…yes, let’s make it! Thank you, Linda Lingle, for this uninspiring contribution to the least inspired–and least inspiring–race for the U.S. Senate in the history of humankind. Hawaii, we should be frightened that Case, Hirono, and Lingle are the best we’ve got. What will become of us?

    I want to learn all I can from the candidates as it relates to their positions on the issues. This channel will allow me to sit in my living room with kids and check out the news from the campaign trail. I presume my life is like others around me…no time to do everything you want. So, bring the conversation to me, is brilliant. I applaud innovation and anyone who thinks otherwise is simply jealous they didn’t think of it. I am an independent and my vote has just swung to Linda Lingle.

    It seems one wants to learn about the candidate but should also learn who the person or persons is backing that candidate by donations. You learn the intent.

    Learn the word Kowtow.
