Hawaii Governor: Ige Wins It Big!
AP calls the race for Ige less than two hours after the polls closed. Former Gov. Ariyoshi says he will make "a great governor."
State Sen. David Ige has won a historic victory in the Hawaii governor’s race, knocking out Gov. Neil Abercrombie in an unprecedented defeat for an incumbent governor.
Ige defeated Abercrombie 66 percent to 31 percent, according to the 3:25 a.m. results posted early Sunday.
The Associated Press called the race for Ige at about 7:45 p.m. and news outlets began declaring victory for the state senator soon after.
The governor conceded the race not long after 9 p.m.
