Winner! Colleen Hanabusa

Sunday, May 23, 2010

In a previous post I talked about the race involving Sen. Colleen Hanabusa and some of the resistence - or let's call it non-support - from the DCCC - but I guess when it comes down to it - you just need a little help from your friends.

Stunning the national political establishment, Colleen Hanabusa emerged as the top Hawai’i Democrat in a divisive special election for Congress. The AAA-Fund candidate’s dramatic finish makes her the odds-on favorite to win this Congressional seat in November.

“Some told us that we shouldn’t be in this race. They told us to sit on the sidelines. They thought that we were going to fail. But momentum has been on our side, and continues to build to our advantage,” said Colleen Hanabusa.

“Tonight, Colleen Hanabusa stood and delivered. Like Joe Sestak, she listened to the voters, and not to voices outside the state,” said Gautam Dutta, AAA Fund Executive Director. “We’ll continue to do our utmost to help her win this Democratic district in the September primary and November general election,” Dutta added.
