Inouye's Last Wish: Sen. Hanabusa

December 18, 2012

The late Sen. Daniel Inouye wanted Rep. Colleen Hanabusa, D-Hawaii, to succeed him in the Senate, and expressed his wish to Democratic Gov. Neil Abercromie in a letter.

Inouye spokesperson Peter Boylan told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser it was Inouye's "last wish" for Hanabusa to succeed him.

Hanabusa has served one term in Congress, occupying the seat Abercrombie held prior to becoming governor. She had considered a 2012 run for retiring Sen. Daniel Akaka's seat, but ultimately decided against it after her fellow Democratic Rep. Mazie Hirono got in the race.

State law says the Hawaii Democratic Party must choose three potential nominees for Abercrombie to consider. He'll select one from that list to fill the seat until the November 2014 general election.
