Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-01) met with DSCC of­fi­cials Thursday, “ac­cord­ing to three people with know­ledge of the meet­ing. Three people fa­mil­i­ar with Hanabusa’s think­ing said it’s very likely she’ll run for” either SEN or GOV “but said she hasn’t made up her mind about which one.” Source: “She’s strug­gling migh­tily between gov­ernor and Sen­ate and has not made up her mind yet, but should do so shortly. Chances are pretty good that she won’t stay in her cur­rent job” (Wash­ing­ton Post).

Ac­cord­ing to a source, the DSCC will back Sen. Bri­an Schatz (D) in a primary. A source fa­mil­i­ar with the DSCC meet­ing said “Hanabusa told the DSCC that she would have the back­ing of former al­lies” of late Sen. Daniel In­ouye (D) “if she ran for Sen­ate and con­sidered a Sen­ate primary easi­er than a po­ten­tial primary for gov­ernor” (Hon­olulu Star-Ad­vert­iser).
