It appears Hawaii’s Republican Senate hopeful Linda Lingle wouldn’t answer questions about her support for the most recent attack on women that came in the form of the Blunt-Brown Amendment last week. But…she will feature Senator Blunt as her headline guest at a fundraiser in DC tonight.


From the Honolulu Civil Beat today:

Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., was in the spotlight last week for his proposal to override the president’s birth control coverage plan. Blunt found himself at the center of a fierce debate over women’s health, and his amendment failed to move forward.

This week, Blunt is teaming up with former Hawaii Gov. Linda Lingle at a Washington, D.C., fundraiser. He’s listed as a “special guest” at the event, which will cost individuals $500 and up to attend.

The Lingle campaign did not immediately respond to an inquiry from DC808 about whether Lingle would have supported the Blunt amendment.



What is Senate Majority PAC?

Senate Majority PAC is fighting to protect and expand the Democratic majority in the U.S. Senate. In 2012, Karl Rove and his friends spent hundreds of millions of dollars trying to buy the Senate. We ran low-overhead, high-impact campaigns to stop him—and we won. Now we’re ready to take on Mitch McConnell and his radical Republican caucus in 2014.
