Political Radar


May 17th, 2014

Warner "Kimo" Sutton, who was the co-chair of former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum's presidential campaign in Hawaii in 2012, said he is running in the Republican primary for lieutenant governor.

Sutton said he would bring a "balance" to the GOP ticket that Elwin Ahu, a former state judge and senior pastor at New Hope Metro who is the leading Republican candidate for lieutenant governor, would not.

Former Lt. Gov. James "Duke" Aiona, who lost to Gov. Neil Abercrombie in 2010, is the Republican contender for governor.

Lt. Gov. Shan Tsutsui and state Sen. Clayton Hee are competing in the Democratic primary for lieutenant governor.

Sutton was passing out hastily arranged fliers and working the room at the state GOP convention on Saturday in Kaneohe.

    Now, why would you ply a reason that brings to mind "bring balance to the Force" in a good # of your potential voters (X-Generation).

    And, since we're on the sahbjec' of movies, for those of you who have NOT yet seen the current Gojira film, well, first of all, SPOILER ALERT . . . gonna try to cover the following in white font so those you no like know, then, no scroll over the following . . . and 'tis a decidedly local POLITICAL statement (however intended or not, most probably the latter):

    Rail EXISTS on the Oahu of the 2014 Godzilla movie. YES! And part of it stems to/from HNL! It's TRUE (er, in this Godzilla universe anyway; and keeping with the movie's theme of "great balance", THAT rail gets trashed and TROUNCED. Won't say by whom or what, for that matter. And YOU though Waiks getting disaster'd was the biggest Oahu thing o'dis film!

    Yeah. Go see a movie.
