Senator Inouye asked Gov Abercrombie to appoint Hanabusa to Senate after his death



Inouye asked Abercrombie to appoint Hanabusa to Senate after his death

In a letter to Gov. Neil Abercrombie that was delivered at 11 a.m. on Monday, just hours before his death, Senator Daniel Inouye apologized for his inability to fulfill his term and made a request for his successor to the United States Senate, according to his office.

Inouye's representatives said that his last wish was for U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa to replace him, citing her intellect and presence and saying it would be a seamless transition if he were to choose her.

1. Procedure is that a list be presented to the state Dem central committee.

 

And they choose from the list.

The committee says they will follow protocol but I doubt they will go against Senator Inouye's wishes.

Per local news.

6. Ah, that would be too bad in a close Dem/Repub House but I guess

we don't have to worry about that until 2014.

I find anything about replacing US Reps in Hawaii.
