HI-01: State Attorney General Doug Chin (D) “announced Friday that he will step down to serve as lieutenant governor in place of Shan Tsutsui, who resigned this week to join a political strategy firm. Chin, who is also running for Congress, was third on the succession list after Senate President Ron Kouchi and House Speaker Scott Saiki, who both declined the offer.” (Honolulu Civil Beat)

IL-03: Holocaust denier Arthur Jones (R) “is all but certain to become the GOP nominee for one of Illinois’s most prominent congressional districts, one that includes parts of Chicago and several suburbs to the west and southwest. Jones is running unopposed in the Republican primary—and the deadline to file to run against him was in early December. His chances of winning the seat are extremely slim.” (Washington Post)

IN-06: Businessman Jonathan Lamb (R) aired a commercial Sunday during the Super Bowl in the Indianapolis market on the NBC affiliate. (release) He’s running against businessman Greg Pence (R) in the race to replace Rep. Luke Messer (R).

Correction: A previous version of this post misstated the profession of Jonathan Lamb. He is a businessman.
