Why Hasn't Hanabusa Raised More Money For Hawaii Senate Campaign?

Colleen Hanabusa has more experience in Congress, greater name recognition and legislative leadership service than Brian Schatz.

She is also the chosen successor of the most powerful, revered figure in Hawaii over the past half century, the late Dan Inouye.

And yet, Hanabusa, a U.S. representative, is far behind Schatz, a U.S. senator, in the chase for campaign contributions. According to their most recent filings with the Federal Election Commission, Schatz has a 3-to-1 cash-on-hand advantage over his 2014 Democratic primary challenger.
