      Particularly important endorsements in Hawai'i are the Sierra Club,  the Progressive Caucus and the Progressive Change Campaign Committee.

      Candidates who are not "progressive" can be distrusted and the Progressive Caucus endorsement is like a certificate of authenticity.

      Sierra Club makes or breaks candidates in Hawaii.

      They got Tulsi Gabbard elected when she was 20 point down from well known Mufi Hannemann.

      The got rid of state senator Pono Chong.

      The put Neil Abercrombie over Mufi Hannemann.

      (You may discern a pattern here - Mufi's actions have been very anti-environment)
