Rep. Young Backs Lingle? No Biggie, Says Hirono Aide

·By civilbeat

Statement from Betsy Lin, campaign manager for Mazie Hirono’s U.S. Senate campaign,  in response to Alaska Republican Congressman Don Young endorsing Republican Linda Lingle:

“Republican Linda Lingle should be proud to have the support of national Republicans in their quest to take control of the U.S. Senate – it’s impressive that 26 Republican U.S. Senators have publicly backed her. What the people of Hawaii continue to be confused by is how this in any way demonstrates that she would be a bipartisan or independent member in the U.S. Senate.”
