HIRONO VOTES THREATEN LOCAL JOBS

News Release from www.Lingle2012.com

HONOLULU - The Linda Lingle Senate Committee released a new television spot today contrasting Governor Linda Lingle’s clear record of job growth for Hawaii with Congresswoman Mazie Hirono’s votes that would cut jobs here at home.

The transcript of the television spot follows:

Announcer: Mazie Hirono says to vote for her because she'll work with Senator Inouye. But Hirono was the only Hawaii legislator to vote for deep cuts to funding our military. (1)

Announcer: And voted for cuts that would cost 10,000 jobs here in Hawaii. (2)

Announcer: She was the only vote against trade with Korea, putting even more jobs at risk. (3)
