  •  Abercrombie got to select from a list of 3 names (8+ / 0-)

    sent to him by the Hawaii Democratic Part Central Committee. So the vote was by the central committee on what 3 names to send to Abercrombie. Candidates petitioned the central committee asking to be selected, so the vote was to narrow that list down to 3 names, and Schatz received the most votes in that vote. State law stipulates that someone from the same political party has to be selected to fill a vacancy, and the party selects 3 names for the Governor to chose from.

    David Koch, a teacher and a Tea Partier sit down a table with a plate of a dozen cookies. Koch quickly stuffs 11 cookies in his pockets, leans to the bagger and says "watch out, the union thug will try to steal your cookie".
