Senator Hirono (D-HI) gives new meaning to the American Dream. Born in Japan, she emigrated to the U.S. in 1955 with her mother to escape an abusive marriage. In 2012, Mazie Hirono became the first Asian-American woman ever elected to the U.S. Senate.

She first entered elective politics in 1980 when she won a seat in the Hawaii State House of Representatives. In 1994, Hirono was elected and served two four-year terms as Hawaii’s Lieutenant Governor. Elected to Congress in 2006, she served three terms before moving to the Senate.

For years, Senator Hirono has been a progressive national security champion. She was recently diagnosed with kidney cancer and underwent surgery, but quickly returned to her Senate duties.

Senator Hirono strongly endorsed the Iran deal, saying that the deal “has gained broad national and international support, including 29 top American nuclear scientists, of which six are Nobel laureates. This agreement is the best option to halt Iran’s nuclear weapon program.”
