Hannemann campaign collects $250,000


Democratic candidate Mufi Hannemann has reported his campaign for Hawaii’s 2nd Congressional District had collected $250,000 during the January to March quarter.

That figure brings his total fundraising to well over $785,000 (including a personal loan of $12,000).

In highlighting strong grassroots support from within Hawaii, the campaign reported that 60 percent of the contributions for the quarter were of $100 or less, and more than 80 percent came from in-state donors.

In addition, the campaign has more than $630,000 cash-on-hand as it heads into the final four months leading to the Aug. 11 Primary Election.

Hannemann said: “The past few months have been immensely gratifying as we reach more and more people, hear their thoughts on the direction our state and nation should be headed, and earn their support through our message of growing the economy, improving our education system, and preserving hard-earned benefits of working men and women.

“Our campaign coordinators in each county are hard at work organizing, we’ve enjoyed the endorsements of 20 labor organizations to date, polls show us with a sizable lead, and, just two weeks ago, we welcomed about 2,000 supporters to our Oahu fundraiser. These are all yardsticks of a campaign that is generating tremendous momentum, and we’ll continue to build on this solid foundation in the weeks ahead.”

The Hannemann campaign also announced Dana Takahara-Dias has agreed to come on board as full-time Director of Field Operations. She will be working closely with island coordinators, campaign staff, and volunteers over the next few months to keep our campaign moving forward.
