David Ige Wins Election For Hawaii Governor

Democrat David Ige defeated Republican James "Duke" Aiona and Independent Mufi Hannemann in Hawaii's gubernatorial contest Tuesday.

Ige defeated former Gov. Neil Abercrombie in August in one of the few instances of a Democratic incumbent being ousted in a primary this election cycle.

Aiona is a former Lieutenant Governor of Hawaii who lost to Abercrombie in 2010's gubernatorial race. In 2012, Hannemann lost to Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii), as a Democrat, in the primary to represent the state's 2nd District. He is a former mayor of Honolulu.
