The Hill posted an item on Linda Lingle’s questioning of Mazie Hirono regarding Hirono’s support for John Edwards 2004 presidential campaign.
During the KHON-AARP Hawaii debate Monday night (Oct. 8), Lingle asked whether Hirono regretted her endorsement of the disgraced former U.S. senator.
Excerpts from The Hill article:
“I think it was clear that you didn’t think he was the best candidate to be president because you supported John Edwards, and I’ve often wondered because you talk so much about women’s issues — and how horribly he treated his late wife — did you ever regret supporting John Edwards for president?” Lingle asked during the debate. …
Lingle’s charge marked a bizarre moment in an otherwise substantive debate. Despite name recognition throughout the islands, Lingle has trailed by double-digits in multiple polls.
