The Hawaii primary was held on Saturday August 9
US Senate: The battle between incumbent Brian Schatz and Representative Colleen Hanabusa remains undecided as of Monday morning, with Schatz holding a small lead of less than 2,000 votes. The ultimate winner will be a heavy favorite against Republican Cam Cavasso in November. The winner of that November election will complete the final two years of the term that began in 2010. Incumbent Daniel Inouye died in late 2012 and Governor Abercromie appointed Schatz as interim Senator until this upcoming special election. Abercrombie's appointment of Schatz was counter to a request by Inouye prior to his death. In the gubernatorial result below, you can see how well that worked out for him.
Governor: Incumbent Neil Abercrombie was obliterated 67% to 31% by State Senator David Ige in one of the worst showings by an incumbent in history. Ige will take on Republican Duke Aiona, a former Lt. Governor, and Independent Mufi Hannemann, the former mayor of Honolulu. This race is expected to be close in November, with Ige slightly favored at this point.
US House: All vote totals can be seen here. Both of Hawaii's Congressional Districts are safely Democratic.
