Gov. Neil Abercrombie had a fundraiser on Thursday night at a Kahala home, with a suggested donation of $2,000 per person.

The governor had raised $3.3 million for his re-election campaign through last June, a figure that is expected to grow substantially when the next state campaign-finance reports are released at the end of January.

Sen. David Ige, who has not been aggressively raising money, is challenging Abercrombie in the Democratic primary.

    Dear Sen. David Ige, thank you for giving us an alternative. David and Goliath... practice aiming your sling shot. I'm laughing picturing David wearing shepherd's dress vs. behemoth Abercrombie in warrior attire... " May your stone fly straight, David. "Finding a hole in the armor, the stone sank into the giant's forehead and he fell face down on the ground."

    You get to have Governor Abercrombie call you back
    for a 2,000 dollar donation. For two cents you get a voicemail
    and auto reply back.

    Governor Abercrombie from day one started his
    re-election campaign. Costing Hawaii an ama.

    "He who is without sin among you, let him be the first to throw a stone at her." Jesus while protecting Mary.

    David I assume was without sin that he casts a stone
    and killed Goliath. He only slung the stone and Goliath fell
    and David killed him with a sword. If wrong sue me.

    Blood money. Every time we see a Neil ad, remember that it was paid for with blood money obtained from selling out Hawaii and all of us!
