Posted October 7, 2009 at 5:10pm

EMILY’s List has endorsed state Senate Majority Leader Colleen Hanabusa in her bid for Hawaii’s open seat in Congress.

Hanabusa, who has been supported by EMILY’s List in some of her past races, will face former Rep. Ed Case in the Democratic primary next September.

“Her dedication to public service and experience as a labor attorney, community organizer, and legislative leader is second to none,” said EMILY’s List President Ellen Malcolm in a statement. “In office, Colleen has not hesitated to take strong stands to protect the rights of women, children, and working families.”
