Where They Won: Breakdown of Senate, Congress, Mayor Races08/13/2012
Kailua's state House district was unique in three ways in Hawaii's three biggest primary races Saturday:
- District 50 was Ed Case's few bright spots in his blowout loss against Mazie Hirono.
- District 50 was the site of Tulsi Gabbard's largest victory margin over Mufi Hannemann in the 2nd Congressional District primary.
- District 50 was one of Ben Cayetano's strongest bases of support in the Honolulu mayor's race.
The electoral map shows Hannemann won just one of 27 districts: central Maui, where he spent much of Election Day rallying with union supporters. Case won just four of 51 districts statewide: Kailua, Hawaii Kai, East Honolulu and Waikiki. And Kirk Caldwell actually topped Cayetano in just two of 35 House districts on Oahu: Aiea and Pearl City.
These are some of the findings from Civil Beat's analysis of district-by-district voting results from Saturday's primary election.
