Hirono Beats Lingle in Hawaii

Hirono's victory keeps alive the state's long streak of Democratic representation in the Senate. She replaces retiring Sen. Daniel Akaka, who has been in office since 1990. Hawaii has not elected a Republican senator since 1970. The win also serves as redemption for Hirono, who narrowly lost to Lingle in the state's 2002 gubernatorial contest.
