‍‍‍‍‍‍Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal

‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍I’m proud to endorse Kaniela Saito Ing for Hawaii’s First Congressional District. When he was in‍‍‍ the State Legislature, he was a huge fighter helping to implement same day voter registration, fighting for immigrant rights and marriage equality. That’s the kind of visionary leadership we need.

Kaniela Ing. Remember that name, because he is going to be one of the most important leaders in the Democratic Party.

‍‍‍A consensus has formed among progressive groups that Hawaii Democrat Kaniela Ing is one of the 5 best candidates running for Congress anywhere in the country. He's easily the best member of Hawaii's legislature with a spectacular record of leadership and powerful ideas he knows how to turn into le‍‍‍gislation.

Alexandria Oc‍‍‍asio-Cortez endorses Kaniela Ing for Congress

Kaniela pledges to not take contributions from the oil, gas, and coal industry and instead prioritize the health of our families, climate, and democracy over fossil fuel industry profits.

‍‍‍Alexandria Ocasi‍‍‍o-Cortez

America: Please send @KanielaIng to Congress with me! H‍‍‍e is incredibly inspiring - another working class American who knocked on 15,000 doors to win his state assembly seat. Now he’s running for Congress. Imagine what we could accomplish if we both went in together.

Kaniela Pledges to Reject all Campaign Donations from C‍‍‍orporate Polluters and Co-Sponsor a Bill for a
100% Renewable Future Nationwide

Kaniela has the strongest environmental record in the race. He is the only candidate who stood firmly on the side of our planet's future, fighting for Water Rights on Maui, the Expansion of Papahaumokuakea, and rejecting the tak‍‍‍eover of Hawaiian Electric by an anti-solar mainland corporation. In Congress, he will help lead the nation to a 100% renewable energy future.

350 Action is really proud to endorse Kaniela Ing. We dont just need passive supporters of the right environmental policies. We need people who are going to be champions. Kanie‍‍‍la Ing is precisely the kind of person we need in Washington, because it's gone seriously astray, and it's time to turn it around.

Representative Sylvia Luke

I'm proud to support native-son Kaniela Saito Ing for Congress because he is the only candidate who has unwaveringly stood up for equal rights and a woman's right to choose. He's someone who captures the spirit and essence of Hawaii. Kaniela is what Hawaii needs right now, and I ask you to join me in supporting him.

Congressman Ro Khanna

I'm endorsing Kaniela Saito Ing for Hawaii's 1st Congressional District‍‍‍ because he walks the walk to get money out of politics and fights for a new way forward. It's young, prov‍‍‍en leaders like Kaniela who will shift paradigms on climate action, innovation, and building a future economy that leaves no one behind.
