I support allowing homosexuals to serve openly in our military and eliminating the 'don't ask, don't tell' policy.
I believe that the fact and the reality of homosexuality and heterosexuality and of opposite and same-gender unions should be taught in our public schools without a value judgement system also being offered.
The sentiments in Hawaii about Washington's failure of leadership are no different than the rest of the country.
I know I can serve Hawaii and our country well in the U.S. Senate, know we can mount a solid statewide campaign, know we have a good chance of prevailing.
Hawaiians want change, and if the Democrats don't offer change, Hawaiians are going to vote for the Republican who offers change.
