In their potential showdown for the Hawaii’s open Senate seat, Rep. Mazie Hirono (D) and former Gov. Linda Lingle (R) have in the last two days announced their second-quarter fundraising and released dueling polls.
Lingle raised more than $1.1 million in the second quarter, outpacing Hirono, who brought in $941,000 from April to June and had $2 million in cash on hand as of June 30. Lingle did not release her cash-on-hand total.
Unlike Lingle, Hirono is facing a competitive Aug. 11 primary against former Rep. Ed Case, who has not yet announced his quarterly fundraising. Hirono is backed by the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
