Hawaii Senate Primary Still Up in the Air

Neither Sen. Brian Schatz (D) nor his primary challenger, Colleen Hanabusa (D), went to bed after Saturday's primary election knowing who won their party's nomination, the Honolulu Star Advertiser reports.

"In one of the closest races in state history, Schatz and Hanabusa were separated by a mere 1,635 votes with all but two precincts accounted for and potentially as many as 8,000 votes from Hawaii island still to be tallied. Election officials still need to tabulate votes from two Puna polling sites that were closed as a result of roads damaged by Tropical Storm Iselle, affecting about 8,000 registered voters."
