6. Abercrombie and Inouye weren't exactly close and he's something of a Contrarian

Also Inouye kinda sorta opposed Abercrombie in the democratic primary for gov last time around (though he did not outright endorse his opponent).

But mostly its just that Abercrombie does what he wants and he's personally loyal to his running mate and LG.

Also maybe Abercrombie wants someone who can be in the senate for a very long time and gather seniority over the long term, Schatz is only 40 while Hanabusa is in her 60s.
