My Senator, Mazie Hirono, from Hawai'i, Campaigns for Ed Markey



On Tuesday night, my former House colleague, Ed Markey, won the Democratic nomination in the special election to replace John Kerry in the U.S. Senate -- and I couldn't be more excited at the prospect of serving with Ed again.

I've always admired him for his tireless leadership on clean and renewable energy, an important issue for Hawaii and our nation -- and his would be a welcome voice in the Senate.


In the 65 hours since Ed became the Democratic nominee, right-wing groups from across the country have descended on Massachusetts to attack Ed and prop up his Republican opponent. He needs our help, especially since the general election is next month.

We Democrats can't let that happen again, especially with so many issues coming before the Senate over the next several months -- from reforming our immigration system to how to protect critical programs for our keiki and kupuna.

Stand With Ed Markey

1. She seemed like a great person

I was invited to her swearing in reception in the Senate on Jan. 3rd. I'm very happy to have her there.

6. I was lucky up to about 2:00 PM that day

That was on Jan. 3. Later on that day, I got a little less lucky:

3. Aloha Maisie and Mahalo!



I would like to see a reprint of this picture in sixty days~~~

Thank you so much for posting this! Great news! We need this kind of support from Sen Maizie Hirono!!!

Mahalo Hawaii!!

I have already made contributions, and will again. Gomez is already fighting dirty.

In the 65 hours since Ed became the Democratic nominee, right-wing groups from across the country have descended on Massachusetts to attack Ed and prop up his Republican opponent. He needs our help, especially since the general election is next month.


We need another strong voice in the Senate!

Thanks, Cha~

4. I want to see that Victory high holding hand sign from the Markeys, after the General, too, she!

So Bad!

Thanks for the pic~ Perfect! And, thanks to Senator Mazie Hirono for jumping in to help!

I just saw a post from Mass about Gomez whining about being "swiftboated" when he's the one who's a big fat freaking swiftboater.

I did not know Gomez was the SEAL trying to swiftboat Pres Obama during the Election! Oh, he has to go DOWN.
