Linda Lingle Loves the Ol' John Hancock

Linda Lingle, Hawaii Senatorial candidate and former governor, is turning to financial services firm John Hancock for more than just investment advice.

The Republican's new campaign spot pays homage to a John Hancock ad from a couple of years back.

Here's the John Hancock ad: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8vXimWZPFXU&feature=youtu.be

And here is the Lingle spot: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bbzV8Y_37i4&feature=youtu.be

The similarities didn't go unnoticed by the campaign of her Democratic opponent, Rep. Mazie Hirono.

At least one person in the Hirono camp Sunday sent out an email laughing at the former governor and calling her "unoriginal."

Ladies, ladies, where's the aloha spirit?
