News Release from
HONOLULU – Governor Linda Lingle’s Senate campaign released a new television spot today called “Do The Math,” which highlights Mazie Hirono’s non-existent Congressional record.
“Over the past six years, Mazie Hirono has built her Congressional career on the backs of her colleagues, claiming accomplishments that simply aren’t hers to claim,” said Campaign Manager, Bob Lee. “It didn’t take long to do the math. She sponsored 49 bills between her election in 2006 and 2012, and zero have been passed into law.* We ask the people of Hawaii to join us to ‘do the math’. It all adds up to zero,” said Campaign Manager Bob Lee.
“Mazie Hirono has a record of ineffective leadership in Washington. Her success rate of 0% is shameful. It’s not that surprising since she has already missed 127 votes so far this year. While Hirono is out campaigning and speaking in over-arching terms about how she can help the people of Hawaii, her record tells a different story. Governor Lingle has a proven record of tangible results to benefit all the people,” Lee added.
“Do the Math” is airing on all the major television stations and cable and is available online at
Follow the campaign on Facebook at, on Twitter at, on YouTube at, and on LL12, channel 110 or LL12 HD, channel 1110 on Oceanic Time-Warner Digital Cable.
