Republicans trying comeback in Hawaii

GOP chair Shirlene Ostrov says that after 60 years of democratic rule, Hawaii is ready for a change in leadership.

To provide a fiscally conservative Democrat, defeated a solid five other high-profile opponents of Honolulu in the Congress on Saturday, including the architects of the state’s legal challenge to President Trump the travel ban, and a follower of the democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

The results were yet another blow for Ocasio-Cortez and Vermont sen. Bernie Sanders, who have always tried to see their message mainstream before the November elections, only to their preferred candidates.

Former Congressman Ed case, a 65-year-old fiscal conservative, overcame Lt. Gov. Doug chin as attorney General of the trombone administration took to court over a ban on entry into the United States from several countries in the Middle East. The measure, confirmed since then by the Supreme court, was initially ruled unconstitutional by a Hawaii Federal judge.

After his loss Saturday, the chin, the people who don’t want to be praised “to the country for granted and the country want to be a better place.”

When the Supreme court upheld Trump the travel ban this summer, chin back sharply condemned the trump administration: “it hurts me today for Hawaii families, and others, the discrimination experienced and he’s a scapegoat by President Trump the bullying remarks and orders.”


The 29-year-old Kaniela Ing, a democratic, socialist, who hoped to follow in the footsteps of colleague Ocasio-Cortez-New York to score a surprise victory. Ing had Ocasio-Cortez-support, and the Bronx socialist party candidate stumped for Ing.

Overall, case 47,482 votes, or 40 percent of the total, compared to 25.5 percent for the chin, and only 6.3 percent for Ing.

He will face Cam Cavasso, a former state representative who ran unsuccessfully for the U.S. Senate.

In the meantime, Hawaii Gov. David Ige won the state’s Democratic primary on Saturday in his bid for a second term in office, overcoming a difficult primary challenge, and the fierce criticism after the state officials, who sent out a false incoming missile Alarm earlier this year and was not corrected for more than 30 minutes.

The results in Hawaii, a heavily Democratic state where Republicans usually have little hope of prevailing in November, were updated in the company of some good news for Democrats as vote totals in the previous country-wide primaries.

Ige defeated U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa, who gave up her seat in Congress to run for Governor. Ing took 51.4 percent of the vote, with 119,310 ballots, compared to Hanabusa’s 44.4 percent.

The incumbent in November, will face state Rep. Andria Tupola, who won the primary, the Republican Governor elections.

The officials mistakenly sent a warning of an impending rocket attack, promising “THIS IS NOT a drill”, to mobile phones, radios and TVs on Jan. 13. Hanabusa used the false alarm as a key campaign cudgel against Ige.

But the Governor dealing with the Kilauea volcano, the last eruption that destroyed more than 700 homes and displaced thousands, as well as devastating floods on Kauai, have enhanced his stature.

Also, Ron Curtis will face off against incumbent Sen. Mazie Hirono in the General election to represent the Republican party of Hawaii, nominated to the U.S. Senate. Hirono, who was first elected to the Senate in 2012, and the first one was Asian-American female senator, is widely expected to win in November.
