Hirono, Lingle set first debate in US Senate race

HONOLULU (AP) - U.S. Senate candidates Mazie Hirono and Linda Lingle have set their first debate as they contend for Hawaii's open seat.

The contenders to replace retiring Sen. Daniel Akaka will appear together at a Sept. 6 lunch forum hosted by the Honolulu Japanese Chamber of Commerce.

The forum will be moderated by Dan Boylan, who writes a column for MidWeek and is a retired history professor at the University of Hawaii-West Oahu.

Chamber officials say topics will include the U.S. economy, jobs, real estate, foreign policy and health care.

Hirono is a Hawaii's representative for the state's 2nd Congressional District. Lingle was governor of Hawaii for eight years until 2010.

The debate marks the first time the candidates will appear together since the general election matchup was set.
