HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Mufi Hannemann has picked up a major business endorsement in the race for Hawaii's 2nd Congressional district.

The National Association of Realtors announced its supporting his run. The organization says Hannemann was a "strong leader" for realtors and homeowners during his tenure as Honolulu's mayor.

Mufi Hannemann said, "I'm delighted to earn the endorsement of the REALTORS. Home ownership, affordable housing, and finding creative ways of fulfilling the housing dreams of future generations of residents are goals we share because they go to the very core of our quality of life."

The trade group has approximately 1.1 million members nationwide.

Hannemann faces democrats, Rafael Del Castillo, Tulsi Gabbard, Esther Kiaaina, Bob Marx and Miles Shiratori in the August primary.
