Representative Mazie Hirono (D-HI) would be the first Asian-American woman ever elected to the U.S. Senate and would be a people’s senator — a leader who comes from humble beginnings and who has overcome difficult obstacles.
Born in Japan, Mazie spent her early years on her grandparents’ rice farm, sent there by her mother to escape a father whose chronic alcoholism and compulsive gambling left the family with few means and even less stability. When nearly eight years old, Mazie, her mother, and her older brother fled Japan for Hawaii in search of a better life.
Mazie served as Hawaii’s lieutenant governor from 1994-2002 and has represented Hawaii’s second district in the U.S. House of Representatives since 2007.
Mazie’s complete biography can be found at http://www.mazieforhawaii.com.
Elizabeth Warren has made her life’s work fighting for middle class families. She’s taken on big banks and financial institutions to win historic new financial protections for middle class families.
Elizabeth has been a law professor at Harvard for nearly 20 years. National Law Journal named her one of the Most Influential Lawyers of the Decade.
In the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis, Elizabeth served as Chair of the Congressional Oversight Panel for TARP. Her efforts to protect taxpayers and hold Wall Street accountable won praise from both sides of the aisle. The Boston Globe named Elizabeth Bostonian of the Year in 2009 for her work.
Elizabeth is widely credited for the original thinking behind the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. She led the establishment of the agency, building the structure and organization to protect consumers from financial tricks and traps hidden in mortgages, credit cards and other financial products.
