HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - U.S. Representative Mazie Hirono received a major endorsement.

EMILY's List is backing Hirono's campaign for U.S. Senate, lauding her work for public schools and early childhood education.

The organization is the nation's largest resource for women in politics.

It's helped raise nearly $83 million for candidates since 1985.

Hirono announced her run for the Senate seat being vacated by Daniel Akaka last month.
