Money talks. Listen, learn, and decide for yourself who you think should be Hawaii’s next governor.

The clarity of the choices and the distinctions between the candidates could not be any more lucid. Kai is our guy.

Breaking – Today’s Civil Beat
Lt. Gov. Josh Green has spent $2.65 million. 27% of his contributions larger than $100 were from out of state.

Cayetano reported spending more than $2.25 million – loaning her own campaign $1.52 million so far. 9% of Cayetano’s donations of more than $100 were from out of state

U.S. Rep. Kai Kahele’s report shows he has spent about $178,000 on the election so far. None of Kahele’s donations of more than $100 were from out of state. *Actually his policy is to not accept donations of more than $100.

According to Civil Beat: “Kahele’s initial filing on June 20 made it clear he is backed by much of the progressive wing of the Democrats at the Legislature, with donors who included Reps. Tina Wildberger, Chris Todd and Amy Perruso and Sen. Laura Acasio.

His small-donor supporters also included familiar names from the left wing of state and local politics such as Kyle Kajihiro, Will Caron, Shannon Rudolph, Bart Dame and former state Sen. Gary Hooser. Former state Democratic Party Chair Stephanie Ohigashi was also among his donors.

Kahele also drew support from some well-known environmental advocates including Marti Townsend, Nelson Ho, Josh Stanbro and David Henkin.”

The Civil Beat article also reports: “He (Green) had more than $629,000 in cash on hand as of June 30, while Cayetano had slightly more than $56,000 on hand. Kahele had about $40,450 in cash on hand.”

Kai is our guy. The recent campaign spending reports prove it. But because he is refusing the big money, us small money guys gotta keep spreading the word and giving what we can.

So if you have not yet made an online contribution to the campaign of $100 or less please do so TODAY. And if you have already maxed out and given the $100 directly to the campaign, please consider supporting the Kai Kahele for Governor Grassroots Community Fund with an additional donation!

Information is per Civil Beat – today…breaking news.
