Denby Fawcett: 5 Ways Mufi Could Lose
It would be easy to write off Mufi Hannemann as politically dead after his two crushing loses — first to Neil Abercrombie in the 2010 governor’s race, and then his defeat to Tulsi Gabbard in the 2nd Congressional District Democratic primary in 2012.
But Hannemann at age 59 doesn’t appear ready to roll over. His friends say he is considering running for the 1st Congressional District seat to be vacated by Colleen Hanabusa in her bid for the Senate seat held by Brian Schatz.
In an email, Hannemann told me: “For the most part, I have been super busy enjoying my consulting and non-profit work both in and out of Hawaii. Nonetheless, discussions are taking place regarding 2014. At this point, however, I have no definitive plans to report.”
