“The 6,100-mem­ber Hawaii Re­gion­al Coun­cil of Car­penters on Tues­day en­dorsed” Gov. Neil Aber­crom­bie (D) “in his 2014 re-elec­tion bid.” (Hon­olulu Star Ad­vert­iser)

The group is usu­ally in­cluded among those in Hawaii con­sidered to be par­tic­u­larly help­ful and ef­fect­ive when it comes to grass­roots or­gan­iz­ing, door-knock­ing, and get­ting sup­port­ers to the polls on Elec­tion Day. Oth­ers in­clude the AFL-CIO, the Hawaii Gov­ern­ment Em­ploy­ees As­so­ci­ation (HGEA), and the Si­erra Club. The HGEA said last month they would not en­dorse in the primary, and Si­erra Club has yet to en­dorse a can­did­ate.
