An unusual alliance here. 

DC808 reports:

U.S. Rep. Mazie Hirono of Hawaii — a Democrat — has been endorsed by U.S. Rep. Don Young of Alaska — a Republican — in her bid for the U.S. Senate.

Press release excerpt:

In the Hirono for Senate campaign ad, which features Reps. Young and Hirono seated side-by-side, Young endorses Hirono, saying, “Here’s what’s important, Hawaii: If you’re looking for a United States Senator who doesn’t just talk about ‘bipartisanship,’ but actually knows how to work with both Republicans and Democrats to get things done — Mazie Hirono will be that Senator.”

“Though Don Young is certainly a Republican, and I am clearly a Democrat, we’ve forged a partnership that enables us to solve problems for the people of both Hawaii and Alaska,” Hirono said.
