Hawaii Governor Blames Primary Loss on Raiders Voting in Open Democratic Primary

According to this story, Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie believes his recent loss in the Democratic primary is because voters who are not loyal to the Democratic Party chose to vote in the Democratic primary, and they voted against him. He thinks some voted against him, and for the winning Democrat, because the other Democrat will be easier to beat in the general election.

This is very ironic, because the Hawaii Democratic Party is in court, trying to establish a closed primary for itself, and Governor Abercrombie has spoken out against his own party’s lawsuit.

  1. I thought this was going to be about the Oakland Raiders. Disappointed again.

    P.R. and nonpartisan App.V. — the latter to get rid of MORON State Guvs the sooner the better.

    I call this a case of “poetic justice” for Governor Abercrombie.

    Ige defeated Abercrombie 157K to 74K, or more than 2 to 1. So apparently Abercrombie thinks at least 84K Republicans crossed over.

    In 2010, when Abercrombie was nominated for governor, about 240K voted the Democratic ballot. In 2014, 238K voted the Democratic ticket. So apparently, not only does Abercrombie think 84K Republicans crossed over, but 86K Democrats, who all would have supported him, stayed home. Meanwhile, those who took the Republican ballot declined from 46K to 44K.

    Abercrombie thinks because he outspent his opponent 10:1 he deserved to win.

    Maybe Abercrombie is suffering from excessive hubris or dementia.
