ANNOUNCER: For Hawaii's middle class, the Star Advertiser endorses Mazie Hirono for U.S. Senate, praising Hirono as a staunch defender of Medicare and Social Security. Only Hirono would press for expiration of the Bush-era tax cuts for the very wealthy, helping preserve a Democratic majority in the Senate, where Hirono will protect and grow Hawaii jobs in defense, tourism and clean energy. Hawaii's middle class knows she stands with them. Mazie Hirono, Senate.
HIRONO: I'm Mazie Hirono and I approve this message.
