Campaign Announces Fundraising Totals for Primary Election Period
HONOLULU - Dutch Hanohano, campaign manager of the Friends of Duke Aiona, today announced that the grassroots campaign raised more than $65,000 over the last 14 days of the primary election, from Sept. 4 to Sept. 18, and began the general election campaign with more than $400,000 cash-on-hand.
Duke Aiona has raised more than $2.6 million for his gubernatorial campaign. Approximately 88 percent of his donations have come from Hawai‘i residents.
"We're seeing a flood of support rushing into our campaign since Duke and Lynn's primary election victory," said Hanohano. "We've been reaching out to Hawai‘i's working families and small businesses across the state, and our message has taken root. Our citizens know that Duke and Lynn are the only candidates for Governor and Lieutenant Governor who will immediately create private sector jobs and strengthen the economy, and won't put us further into debt."
