Incumbent Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie was soundly defeated in the state's Democratic primary, results showed on Sunday.
The loss by Abercrombie, who had been endorsed by Hawaii-born President Barack Obama, marked the first defeat for an incumbent Democratic governor in Hawaii since it was granted statehood in 1959, potentially re-arranging the political landscape before the U.S. general election in November.
Final results showed Abercrombie with 30.8 percent of the votes and the winner, state Senator David Ige, with 66.1 percent.

obama’s endorsement is the kiss of death
Poor Haole dinosaur Democrat. Couldn’t have happened to a better Obama supporter.
Are the democrat voters having their own tea party, taking down the established politicians? Maybe they are open to the truth.
Ive always thought that one could take only so much.
This evidently holds true even for cultic democrat types
Are democrats getting rid of their Dino’s? He was a real leftist. Maybe too leftist.
The “Old Hippie” Democrats are doomed. Their slavish media and voter fraud are all they have left.
Should we care? One damned Democrat is no better than another. And Hawaii should sink back under the waves.
Barry was born in Hawaii?
Who knows ? Ain’t like we’ve ever seen authentic documentation.
Wait a minute...this governor approved of gay “marriage” how can Democrats reject him?????
Barry was born in Hawaii?
My middle son was born at Tripler Army hospital in Hawaii. Obama ruined Hawaii for me.
There was a lot of grass root religious group efforts to get rid of him. His opponent also scored highly with 2nd Amendment supporters, which of course the smelly troll was dead set against.
He claims that he was, but the hospital listed on his "birth certificate" has remained conspicuously silent about the event.
Myself, I don't believe that Obama was born in the hospital listed on his "birth certificate", but Obama is too cowardly to allow the hospital to release his and his mother's records, because there are no such records.
Think about this: If Obama had run for senator or governor in Hawaii, his chances of winning would not have been very good, because of Hawaii's majority large Asian population, and they often vote for fellow Asians.
Agreed, hopefully every Democrat endorsed by Obama is trounced in this manner as the election should be a simple choice of do you agree with and support a candidate aligned with and facilitating Obama’s destruction of America or not. Simply love the short coattails or as John writes, Obama’s kiss of death.
BTW, I am in Hawaii since Friday, on the island of Oahu. Drove all around yesterday—road trip-style, visiting beaches and basically circled the islands. Lots of folks out near the schools waving and encouraging people to vote for their respective candidates. At least on Oahu, there were zero weather-related hinderances to voting.
a spit in the face of Obama. he was over here to help Abercrombie a few months ago and Abie got his ass kicked bad. First time in Hawaii’s history a governor only lasted for one term. The left wing , Liberal , hippy bites the dust. 30% , his opponent got 66%. Eat it Obama.
not so fast friend, Ige who beat Abie is still a liberal Democrat and will probably wipe the floor with Republican Abe Iona. Hope not but hey, this is Hawaii, rank with demorats.
Hell no!...but when their BS affects them...They damn sure come around quick...lol
I hope the humiliation wounds him for life. He deserves it after spitting on returning VN veterans' buses and organizing protests.
Oh yes, for those not familiar with the little POS, he was a central member of the House Socialist Caucus.
“Are the democrat voters having their own tea party, taking down the established politicians? Maybe they are open to the truth.”
Nah, the Japanese simply want to take over again. Abercrombie wasn’t “one of them.”
we are all SO Ecstatic about this crushing defeat .
Wow......”Chief Yellow Teeth” got TROUNCED!!!
Am I a Doofus?
I believe I read that he spent close to 5 million and Ige spent a little less that 500 thousand. LOL Ige is still a liberal Democrat but Abercrombie was a total leftist Party Line all the way hippy idiot.
