    I live in downtown Honolulu. It's hard to forget that Lingle beat Hirono in the 2002 gubernatorial race. On Election Night, it seemed like Mazie was more relieved than annoyed that she had lost.

    Times change. By 2010, Lingle was poorly regarded by voters and Neil Abercrombie had an easy time in the primaries and general election. Mazie was already in Congress.

    Mazie should have an easy win over Lingle, but mainland ad buys keep coming for Linda.

      I am concerned that the US Chamber of Commerce has spent over $500,000 for Lingle so far and in Hawaii's small TV market that's a lot.  

      And reflectionsv37 comment above is a good one - especially about Case.
