Hanabusa vs. Schatz Rematch: Play Senate Debate Bingo Again

Improve your viewing of the Hanabusa-Schatz face-off tonight by picking phrases that you expect to hear during the debate.


Tonight is the third and final debate match-up between Sen. Brian Schatz and U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa. If we’re using the previous debates as a guide, expect a few fireworks and maybe even a couple of props (Hanabusa whipped out a photo of Schatz with Gov. Neil Abercrombie and produced a strategy memo from the Schatz campaign during Tuesday night’s debate).

Once again, we’re providing you with a blank bingo card and a revised list of buzz words and phrases to pick from (you’ll notice some of these phrases come straight from the previous face-offs between the two candidates). Choose 24 words or phrases to fill your card with. As usual, the center block is a free space. First one to yell Bingo wins. Feel free to social-media shout bingo on our Facebook at facebook.com/honolulumag or here in the comments.
