10. Abecrombie claims it was because he wanted to keep Hanabusa where she is because of her position

on the Armed Services Committee. Also, he is hoping to develop seniority.......

Abercrombie said that his decision was in the “overall best interest” of the state and that “sometimes you have to set aside personal considerations in order to look for the good of the whole.”

“Now that Sen. Akaka has retired and Senator Inouye has passed away, that Representative Hanabusa occupies a key position on the Armed Services Committee in the House of Representatives,” he said.

"and I think as well the question of establishing seniority in as many venues as we can with our small delegation is another foremost consideration.”
