Political Survivor

Veteran lawmaker Mazie Hirono started her political career as a scrappy liberal consumer advocate in the Hawai‘i Legislature in the 1980s. In 2013, she won election to the U.S. Senate, becoming the first Asian-American female, the first female senator from Hawai‘i, the first Buddhist senator and the only immigrant currently serving. As she runs for a second term we take a closer look at a politician who’s more interesting now than she’s ever been.
