Schatz, Hanabusa trade blows on record in final Hawaii debate

Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) and Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-Hawaii) took off the gloves in their final primary debate, accusing each other of being ineffective lawmakers Thursday night.

Schatz accused Hanabusa of focusing on her state Senate career because of a lack of accomplishments since she got to Washington, D.C., in 2010. 

"You do not have an active record as a legislator in the Congress," Schatz said, according to reports, arguing that the only thing Hanabusa has gotten passed in Congress is a bill renaming a post office.

Hanabusa hit back, arguing that he was embellishing his record in the Senate and that he'd done little on the Senate Tourism subcommittee.

Schatz has dominated in fundraising and had an edge in the few public and private polls of the race ahead of the Aug. 9 primary.
