U.S. Rep. Abercrombie of Hawaii has more than $1 million war chest

By Derrick DePledge
Advertiser Government Writer

U.S. Rep. Neil Abercrombie has more than $1 million in cash available for his re-election campaign in 2008 as he tries to discourage serious challengers and clear a path for a possible run for governor in 2010.

The congressman has raised more than $550,000 for his campaign, federal records show, and began the election cycle with more than $600,000 left over from his last campaign. The $1.15 million is substantially more money than the amounts he had at this point in other recent election campaigns.

-----

Abercrombie considered running for governor against Gov. Linda Lingle last year but chose to stay in Congress, where he is now chairman of the House Armed Services Committee's air and land forces subcommittee.

Friends believe Abercrombie is interested in running for governor in 2010, but say the Congressman does not want to talk openly about his ambition until after next year's election.

1. Good.
He knows the job, he's good at it, and I want to focus on the presidential race this year.
Thanks Neil!
