Breaking news: Sen. Gary Hooser to announce run for Lt. Governor in 2010
by Larry Geller
I’m surprised. I thought Sen. Hooser would run for Governor.
From an email circulating this evening:
…I am excited to let you know that I will be announcing shortly my intention to run for the office of Lieutenant Governor in 2010.
While I truly love the work that I do as Kaua`i's Senator and the present Senate Majority Leader, the opportunity to serve an even stronger role in leading Hawai`i toward a positive and sustainable future has caused me to come to this decision. The election of our new President Barack Obama has further inspired me to have the courage to strive for a broader platform from which I can do more for the people of Hawai`i.
There’s more at his campaign website, garyhooser.com.
Actually, I just found this in today’s Advertiser, so it isn’t really breaking news I guess, but I didn’t get the email until this evening. Darn this technology…
