US Rep. Hirono raises $100K in September

HONOLULU (AP) - Democratic U.S. Rep. Mazie Hirono raised almost $100,800 during September in her bid for re-election to the seat representing Hawaii's 2nd Congressional District.

Her report filed with the Federal Election Commission shows that she had more than $368,000 left in her treasury as of Sept. 30.

The commission's website did not list a report from Hirono's Republican foe, airline pilot John Willoughby. He was not immediately available for comment.

Willoughby's most recent report, filed in early-September for the two-month period that ended Aug. 30, showed he had about $1,900 remaining in his campaign treasury.

The next filing deadline is Oct. 21.
