Democrat Neil Abercrombie elected Hawaii
November 3, 2010
Abercrombie, a former 10-term congressman who represented urban Honolulu, defeated Republican James ”Duke” Aiona.
Abercrombie’s victory also made former state Democratic Party Chairman Brian Schatz the new lieutenant governor. In Hawaii, candidates for the state’s top two posts run on a ticket.
Aiona had been lieutenant governor. His running mate was state Rep. Lynn Finnegan.
Early returns showed Abercrombie with 58 percent of the vote and a nearly 19,000-vote lead over Aiona.
