Democratic Primary in Hawaii Looks Close

A new Civil Beat poll in Hawaii finds Sen. Brian Schatz (D) with a narrow lead over Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D) in the Democratic Senate primary, 36% to 33%.

"Schatz, appointed in late December by Gov. Neil Abercrombie to the seat held by the late Sen. Daniel K. Inouye, is being challenged by the congresswoman who Inouye wanted to take his place. The race has divided the state's dominant political party, in part because of Inouye's influential standing in the party even after his death, and because the candidates hold similar policy views."
