Storm puts Hawaii race in limbo as Schatz clings to slim lead

Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) is clinging to a fragile lead over Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-Hawaii) with most of the vote counted in Hawaii’s hard-fought Senate primary.

Schatz had a 1,788 vote edge over Hanabusa with 99 percent of precincts reporting out of more than 200,000 votes cast statewide as of 5:15 a.m. ET.
The two have been battling hard for nearly a year, and it appears they will have to wait a bit longer to find out who has won the race.

Adding an added dose of uncertainty: Voters from two precincts have so far been unable to cast ballots — the precincts were closed due to damage from Tropical Storm Iselle, which hit the Hawaiian Islands on Friday.
