HONOLULU— Democrat Mufi Hannemann reported today that his campaign for Hawaii’s 2nd Congressional District has collected more than $538,000 ($526,000 raised and a $12,000 loan from the candidate) since he announced his candidacy on August 30 through December 31.

Overall, 82 percent of the contributions came from in-state, with close to one-half of those in the form of donations of $100 or less.

“The response to our campaign for Congress has been remarkable. Our fund-raising reflects a cross-section of support from throughout Hawaii, from small business owners and labor, diverse professions, and grassroots supporters in every county,” said Hannemann. “Our message of putting people back to work, while protecting vital benefits like Social Security and Medicare continues to resonate with voters.”

 Hannemann also today received the endorsement of Hui Ana O Maka‘i, the organization representing the retirees of the Honolulu Police Department.

Co-Chair of the Hui Ana O Maka‘i PAC, Steven T.K. Burke, said, “As a former Councilmember and Mayor of the City and County of Honolulu, Mufi has always strived to make Honolulu and the entire state of Hawaii a better place to live. We fully support his efforts to take this same positive commitment to Washington, D.C. We are asking all of our law enforcement brothers and sisters, both in-service and retirees, as well as their ‘ohana, to back Mufi for Congress.”

 Hannemann said, “I’m very grateful to have the support of Hui Ana O Maka‘i. I have always been a strong champion for our men and women in law enforcement, and will continue to support their retirees who have served us so valiantly through the years.” Hannemann has previously received the endorsements of 14 labor organizations representing over 60,000 active members and retirees throughout the state.

    The article says Mufi is running as a Democrat, but it would make MUCH more sense for him to run as Republican since he stands for big business and good ‘ole boys.

    People in Hawaii who are donating to Mufi Hanneman need to realize that he’s just using them for his political career – he doesn’t care about the people.
