HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) – President Obama's sister Maya Soetoro-Ng recorded a message to be sent to phones in Hawaii endorsing Brian Schatz as a candidate for Lieutenant Governor.

"Aloha I'm Maya Soetoro –Ng. I'm a teacher a mother and a Hawaii resident and I want to tell you about my friend Brian Schatz…" said Soetoro-Ng on the recording.

Schatz and Soetoro-Ng got to know each other while Barack Obama was running for the presidency. Schatz headed up Obama's Hawaii campaign and later served as state Democratic Party chairman.

Besides this endorsement, Soetoro-Ng reportedly says she does not plan to get involved in this year's political races.
