President Barack Obama has endorsed Sen. Brian Schatz in Hawaii’s U.S. Senate election.

The President pointed to Schatz’s leadership in the Senate and his work to protect Social Security, promote clean energy and fight for middle-class families.

“Sen. Schatz is protecting Hawaii’s values and fighting every day on behalf of middle-class families,” President Obama said. “There is no question that Sen. Schatz is the right choice to continue delivering for Hawaii.”

“I’m honored to receive President Obama’s endorsement in this critical election and I am proud to be one of the president’s most steadfast allies in the U.S. Senate,” said Sen. Schatz.

A spokesperson for Schatz’s challenger, U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa, says Hanabusa is a skilled legislator with a proven record of leadership and bipartisan accomplishment.
