Neil Abercrombie Beats Anti-Marriage Republican Duke Aiona

Some (good) late night election news we weren’t able to stay up for: In Hawaii, Rep. Neil Abercrombie — the pro civil unions, but not necessarily marriage candidate — beat Republican challenger Lt. Gov. James ‘Duke’ Aiona. Abercrombie, a New York native, becomes the state’s seventh governor.

      This is a good thing, since I was born in Hawaii I know how very conservative the entire state is. It’s good that the elections are going in a good election(cept for the Rep’s house takeover)

      Did the House stay Democratic? If so yes, I’d say they should get their fully-equal (except for the name) Civil Unions.

      @george: The Hawaii Legislature is overwhelmingly Democratic.

      Hawaiian politics is a weird and wonderful thing to behold. One of the most democratic states while also with a strong streak of blue collar conservatism.

      I miss home!
