Election 2006 Hawai‘i style: ‘Last hurrah’ or ‘beginning of a new era’

Editor’s note: Hawai‘i voters select party candidates in the Sept. 23 primary for a number of key elections across the state. Two democratic party races are receiving the most attention: the contest between incumebent U.S. Senator Daniel Akaka and challenger, U.S. Rep. Ed Case, and the 10-way contest to run for Case’s House seat. Kalamalama has put together, for your voting convenience, short bios on Akaka, Case, eight of the Democrat contenters for Case’s House seat, and the issues on which they stand.

Depending on who wins the Senate primary, one political commentator, Dr. Jack Hart, HPU professor of communication, has already called the election: “Either the last hurrah for the old Democratic Party or the beginning of a new era for Hawai‘i’s young Democrats.” And that’s the focus of Rep. Case’s challenge of incumbent Senator Akaka.
