Re: Recent Polling Results

The results of our recent poll of Hawaii Democratic Primary voters show that Congresswoman Mazie
Hirono is in a strong position to become the Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate. She currently receives
a majority of the vote and holds a double-digit lead over former Congressman Ed Case.
