Who Wants To Be A U.S. Senator?

Chad Blair/Civil Beat


It's what everyone in town is talking about: Who will be appointed to replace Daniel K. Inouye in the U.S. Senate?

Hawaii will have an answer a week from Friday, it seems.

That's when the State Central Committee of the Democratic Party of Hawaii will meet to select three names to send to Gov. Neil Abercrombie, who has the final say. The governor said Thursday he would then choose someone "very, very quickly."

But who? Someone already in Congress or who has served there? A failed congressional candidate? A former governor? A state legislator? His own lieutenant governor?

Civil Beat handicaps the hottest contest in town.
