Sen. Inouye, 'A Giant of the Senate,' dies at age of 88.

Sen. Daniel Inouye, currently the longest serving member of the Senate, has died at the age of 88. The Democrat was the senior Senator from the Aloha State and a long time presence on the Appropriations Committee. A Japanese American, he was wounded in World War II, losing his right arm in combat.

  • Gov. Neil Abercrombie will appoint a successor. Democrats are widely expected to hold the seat.
  • Inouye has been in declining health and his death was not unexpected.
  • Hawaii, once towering in seniority, will have two freshman senators following Inouye’s death and the retirement of Sen. Daniel Akaka.
