STATEMENT ON POLITICALLY-MOTIVATED COMPLAINT
HONOLULU - Travis Taylor, communications director of the Aiona-Finnegan Campaign, today issued the following statement regarding a politically-motivated complaint filed by the Hawai‘i Democratic Party.
"Now that the momentum of this campaign has shifted, our opponent is playing Washington politics in a desperate attempt to divert attention away from his inability to explain whether he will cut programs, raise taxes or fail to deliver on his promises to grow government at the expense of small businesses and working families. The Aiona-Finnegan Campaign and the RGA have fully complied with all applicable laws."
