Incumbent Claims Victory In Hawaii Senate Race

(Honolulu, HI) — Incumbent Hawaii Senator Brian Schatz is claiming victory in his state’s Democratic primary. He held onto a 17-hundred vote lead late Friday night over challenger Colleen Hanabusa. Votes from one district came in six days late because the region was hit hard by Tropical Storm Iselle. Hanabusa has not ruled out an appeal to the state’s top court.
