Abercrombie becomes first Hawaii Governor to lose a reelection primary

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) – For the first time in Hawaii history, a sitting governor has lost a primary election to a challenger from within their own party.

By 9:45 p.m., the Neil Abercrombie banner was coming down and the cleanup crew was hard at work packing up the campaign party at Ward Warehouse. The incumbent lost by more than 37 percent of the vote by the third printout. In his concession speech, he said despite his shortcomings, he always gave it his best.

“Faith and trust has been placed in me, and I’ve tried to honor that faith and trust. Whatever shortcomings I have, whatever faults I have, I can guarantee you one has never been a failure to give all I can every day I can for Hawaii,” said Gov. Neil Abercrombie.

In his first term as Governor, he made a lot of tough decisions and in the process upset quite a few groups including the religious right, teachers, nurses and the elderly.

He now becomes the first Governor in Hawaii history to lose his bid for reelection in the primary.

    I wonder if his covering for Obama had anything to do with his loss, ROTFLMAO!!!!

    Oh phuckin boo hoo, just get the phuck gone.

    Neil Abercrombie had pledged to provide proof that Mr. Obama was born at Kapi’olani Medical Center in Hawaii, injecting himself into the birth controversy. He failed to deliver on that promise. Could that be why Democratic voters supported the challenger?

  • James in Texas says:

    Nothing has changed. Hawaii still has two classes of people, the Very Wealthy and the Welfare class. Both of which still believe in the Liberal side of Big government and “more Freebies”! But, it remains a very beautiful place to visit.

    To paraphrase those words by Hillary Clinton,” what difference does it make”. Hawaii will elect another Democrat to the governors office, and no matter how you slice it Democrats will always be Democrats the flavor is the same.

    Abercrombie is/was one of the 70 members of Congress belonging to the DSA. (democrat Socialists of America) In other words, a communist)
