HIRONO: When I was a young girl growing up in Japan, my mother endured a really terrible marriage at the hands of an abusive husband. My mother planned and plotted in secret to get us all away. She boarded us on the President Cleveland and we set sail for America. Those early years were really tough. We literally were living paycheck to paycheck. I learned to be self-reliant.
ANNOUNCER: That's why Mazie Hirono is determined to make Hawaii more energy and food independent, too. End the billions and taxpayer subsidies for big oil, incentivize Hawaii's homegrown energy sources, train a clean-energy workforce to create Hawaii jobs, promote "buy local" food programs and prepare a new generation of farmers. A stronger, more sustainable Hawaii from a people's senator determined to make us sell. Mazie Hirono, Democrat for US Senate.
HIRONO: I'm Mazie Hirono and I approve this message.
