For nearly 50 years, my husband, Dan, served the people of Hawai’i and this nation in the U.S. Senate. … Right before he passed away last December, Dan asked for Colleen Hanabusa to serve out his term. … Dan knew she worked hard and was a leader. …
I’m honoring Dan’s last wish and putting my full support behind Colleen Hanabusa. I’m asking you to do the same and contribute to her campaign right now. …
I’m moved to see an outpouring of support for Dan’s last wish. … Colleen will carry the same torch, fighting for fairness and opportunity for all in the Senate. Thank you for your consideration.
