Hanabusa only raked in $230K last quarter. Not especially impressive by any means.

Raised $230k for what? She's not even running for anything yet and she already raised $230k? Give me that money, I'm not running for anything either. Smiley

Hanabusa isn't a very intelligent woman. She isn't even House material. I hope Schatz can hang on. Fundraising looks solid.

I really don't get all the hate for Hanabusa.

It's not about her personally as much as it is about the ethics of her claim to the seat and what Inouye chose to do in his final days.  You don't get to will your senate seat in this country, no matter who you are.  It's not a title of nobility!

But Hanabusa isn't claiming the seat now, she's considering running to take office in the future. If she did run and win, her claim to the seat would be based on the result of an election, not Inouye's will.

Schatz can't say he's entitled to avoid a challenge or hold the seat just because the governor picked him.
