A new private poll shows U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz with a lead over U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa in the Democratic primary for U.S. Senate.
The poll was taken by Public Policy Polling for Democracy for America among 606 likely primary voters from May 9 to May 11. The margin of error was 4 percentage points. Democracy for America has endorsed Schatz.
A Hawaii Poll taken in February showed Hanabusa with a slight edge. Other polls have had the race tied.
