Former Lt. Gov. James "Duke" Aiona has started fundraising for his Republican campaign for governor.
Aiona held a $50 per person fundraiser in Kapolei on April 5 and has a $55 per person event scheduled for Waialae Country Club on Wednesday night.
Aiona, who lost to Gov. Neil Abercrombie in 2010, had not been aggressively raising money when he informally rolled out his campaign earlier this year.
