U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz, the declared winner in his primary against U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa, spoke by telephone Sunday night with President Barack Obama, his campaign said.

Schatz thanked Obama for his support throughout the Democratic primary:

"It meant a lot to hear from the President.  His endorsement was important to me personally and to the campaign, and I thanked him for it.  We talked primarily about the future and the need to work together for the country as a whole and for Hawaii, which will always be special to him.  We still have the general election in front of us, but it was very heartwarming to hear from him."
