HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Hawaii Chapter of the Sierra Club announced Sunday that it is endorsing Mazie Hirono for U.S. Senate, Colleen Hanabusa in her re-election bid to the First Congressional District, and Tulsi Gabbard for the Second Congressional District.
The Sierra Club is the state's largest environmental grassroots organization. It said it picked the three Democrats in a lengthy process that involved all the candidates.
"We went through a long process starting several months ago," said Steve Montgomery, the Hawaii Chapter's political co-chair. "We have a questionnaire that was developed with our partners in the national Sierra Club office, and that was sent out to every candidate that was filing for the office."
