Is Brian Schatz a little too slick to win? Has Colleen Hanabusa been too mean in the debates? Who’s the real underdog? And will one candidate go negative in the final ads leading up to primary day?
The Pod Squad has answers and shares them with you in our latest episode. Host Chad Blair welcomes Civil Beat reporter Nick Grube and former UH political science professor and columnist Neal Milner to talk about where things stand in the hotly contested U.S. Senate campaign.
Asked whether the campaign would get negative, Nick Grube responded, “I feel like the campaign has been pretty tame so far. Colleen has gone on the offensive definitely during some of the debates, but I think any time you go negative in Hawaii it does run the risk of backfiring.”
