Kris Schultz on the Akaka Primary

[I have not been following what has been going on in Hawaii with the Democratic Primary as much as Kris has. However, I did do a little inquiring from a native of Hawaii, and here is his response. At any rate, Kris has been kind enough to allow me to post her comments as a blog entry. - Lizzy]

Here's something you aren't hearing enough about in the blog world - the Akaka primary in Hawaii.

It's a reverse Lieberman situation, where anti-war Akaka is being challenged by Bush sympathizing Case. Akaka is one of 13 Senators to vote for a firm timetable of withdrawl of U.S. troops from Iraq, while Case rubberstamped Bush's war in a house vote the week before. I wrote some blog postings about it that you might be interested in. Akaka needs as much support as we can give him.

Wouldn't it be ironic if Lamont goes to the Senate from CT, yet his votes are cancelled out by D-in-name-only, pro-Bush/Pro-Iraq war Ed Case from Hawaii? We need to fight to keep Akaka in the Senate.

Spread the word and Support Akaka!
