Hawaii Senate: Akaka Still Planning to Run

Senator Daniel Akaka (D-HI) was asked by POLITICO Thursday about his “lackluster fundraising over the final quarter of 2010.”

But the 87-year-old Akaka said he still plans to run for a fourth term.

“As I’ve been saying, I’m looking forward to running – and I still haven’t changed my mind,” he said.

A spokesman later said the senator planned on stepping up fundraising this quarter and chalked up the slow start to Akaka’s focus on Rep. Colleen Hanabusa and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
