WASHINGTON — As Congresswoman Mazie Hirono's campaign for U.S. Senate gained momentum this week, her opponent Ed Case came to the nation's capital and attacked her as a "status quo" candidate.

Hirono and Case, a former congressman, both want to replace Sen. Daniel Akaka, who is not running for re-election in 2012. The same week that Sen. Daniel Inouye revealed to Civil Beat that he wants Hirono to win, Case was in Washington trying to raise money and bolster his campaign.
