State Sen. David Ige was not quietly ramping up his fundraising in the months leading up to his announcement that he would challenge Gov. Neil Abercrombie in the Democratic primary.

Ige's latest campaign-finance report, which covers fundraising from January through June, shows that Ige raised just $21,128. He had $86,379 in cash on hand at the end of June.

State law allows Ige to transfer the money to his gubernatorial campaign.

Abercrombie had raised more than $2.4 million through December for his re-election campaign.

    Too bad 2.4 million dollars plus 86,379 dollars
    paid to pull strings. Expensive marionettes.

    I'm voting' for Ige even if he doesn't have a plug nickel to his name.

  3. Especially Incognito:

    Ige has five cents. Smell, touch, see, hear and feel.
    A nickel is more than most others have. No common sense
    in some.
