2018 Senate Election
Senator Mazie K. Hirono
Mazie Hirono is seeking a second term from Hawaii, one of the biggest Democratic strongholds in the nation. Hirono was the first woman to be elected to the Hawaii Senate, the first Asian-American woman to be elected to the U.S. Senate, the first Buddhist Senator, and the first U.S. Senator to be born in Japan. Despite also battling kidney cancer, Hirono looks to retain her seat, and has no serious challenger in the race.
