The state Office of Elections updated the primary election results on Wednesday evening to reflect provisional ballots and other ballots found during an audit.

So for those following closely, the gap between U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz and U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa in the Democratic primary for Senate widened to 1,782 votes. After Friday's makeup election in Puna on Hawaii island, the gap had been 1,769 votes.

Schatz: 115,445
Hanabusa: 113,663

    You know the really sad thing about this prolonged-ness o' this Hawaii Primary (Damn You ACLU A----les, otherwise known as DYACLUA)? It's gonna go longer than the 8 day The Simpsons marathon. Talk about injustice.

    Here. Variation on "Hands up, don't shoot" from that embarrassing fracas in Ferguson (by the way, you can hear the Leftist media -- grey-haired Vanderbilt, Al Sharpton, all of 'em -- packing up already, headed to Chi-town with the prospect of ISIS/ISIL wanting to do a Joker special to that town) for us to the ACLU:

    Primary over
    Go home.

    Yeah. Articulate. Like I care what you think. 🙂

    CH narrowed the gap, which surprises me given the demographics of the area. Her overt prescence passing out food and water at the Makuu market area must have been a better ground game than I gave it credit for at the time. It came across as "udggie" to me (is that how you would spell it?) but in times of trouble perhaps stylistic differences pale before the harsh realities of just getting by.
    Well played to Sen Schatz though, he established a platform for the future. A few visits over the next 2 years, an appropriation specific to invasive species control, and he's got a solid reference for a "saw it, went there, did something about it ".
