Why Abercrombie Bucked Inouye

Politico: "Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie's decision to buck the dying wish of legendary Sen. Daniel Inouye and install his own No. 2, Lt. Gov. Brian Schatz, as the state's soon-to-be senior senator may be less surprising than it seems."

"Abercrombie and Inouye were not allies. In fact, their two-decade relationship in Congress was marked by rifts -- most notably over Inouye's encouragement of a primary challenger to Abercrombie in the 2010 governor's race. Abercrombie and Schatz were running mates in that same election."
