PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA ENDORSES MAZIE HIRONO FOR US SENATE

IN RADIO AD, PRESIDENT OBAMA ASKS HAWAII TO SEND HIS “FRIEND AND ALLY MAZIE HIRONO TO THE UNITED STATES SENATE”

HONOLULU – US Senate candidate Mazie Hirono today announced the endorsement of Hawaii’s island son President Barack Obama.

In a :60 statewide radio spot, President Obama calls Hirono “part of my ohana at home in Hawaii” and urges Hawaii to send Hirono to the US Senate, calling her a “staunch defender of Medicare and Social Security.”

The President says: “I need Mazie’s cooperative style and commitment to middle-class families in the U.S. Senate.”

Mazie Hirono stated, “I'm very pleased and humbled President Obama is speaking directly to the people of Hawaii on my behalf.  Like so many of us in Hawaii, I am inspired to be part of President Obama's ohana.  In the U.S. Senate, I will continue to work cooperatively with President Obama to move our economy, our middle class families and our country forward.”

TRANSCRIPT

 

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA:  Aloha, Hawaii. This is President Obama. Working together, we’ve made real progress you and I can be proud of. We can’t turn back now. Which is exactly why I’m urging you to send Mazie Hirono to the United States Senate.

 

Years ago, Mazie worked with my late grandmother.  So Mazie isn’t just a reliable partner of mine in Washington; she is part of my ohana at home in Hawaii.

 

Now, I need Mazie’s cooperative style and commitment to middle-class families in the U.S. Senate.

 

Mazie is a nationally-recognized leader in early-childhood education. A staunch defender of Medicare and Social Security.

 

And I rely on Mazie to fight for middle-class priorities – like passage of the American Jobs Act to create nearly two million new jobs.

 

This is President Obama.  Asking you to send my ally and friend, Mazie Hirono, to the United States Senate. Let’s keep Hawaii and our country moving forward. Mahalo.

 

MAZIE HIRONO:  I’m Mazie Hirono and I approve this message.

 

Male VO:  Paid for by Friends of Mazie Hirono.
