Such impeccable timing. Anti-marriage equality and ex-governor Linda Lingle of Hawaii has announced her Senate bid.
Former Gov. Linda Lingle announced today that she will enter the Republican primary for U.S. Senate.
Lingle, the first woman and the first Republican elected governor in four decades, will stress her chief executive experience in her campaign.
She described governors as “very practical people because we had to get things done as governors.”
Lingle also said she would be an independent voice for Hawaii. “I want to be real clear on this point: I don’t work for (Senate Minority Leader) Mitch McConnell, and for that matter I don’t work for President Obama. I work for the people of Hawaii,” she said on the Perry & Price radio show.
“And if there is a law being proposed, whether it’s from the president or from Mitch McConnell, if it’s good for Hawaii I’m for it. If it’s not good for us, I’m against it regardless of who introduces it.”
