The University of Hawaii Professional Assembly has invested in additional television advertising and direct mail for former congressman Ed Case in the Democratic primary for U.S. Senate.

According to Federal Election Commission reports, the faculty union has spent $237,355 so far this year on behalf of Case, who is facing U.S. Rep. Mazie Hirono in the primary.

UHPA’s independent spending has helped Case, who has struggled with his own fundraising, keep a media presence.

    If I were “The University of Hawaii Professional Assembly”,
    I would have given two cents to case (d) and kept the other $23,7254.98 to fix up UH.
    case can still lose to lingle if he wins over Hirono.
    The 1% can afford to spend other people’s money.
