State Sen, David Ige, the Democratic candidate for governor, has started fundraising to prepare for the November general election.

Ige had a fundraising event on Monday evening at the Waialae Country Club. The suggested contribution was $1,000, or $2,500 for sponsor level.

Ige has another fundraiser set for next Wednesday evening at 3660 On the Rise. The suggested donation is $36.

Former Lt. Gov. James "Duke" Aiona, the Republican candidate for governor, has held two post-primary fundraisers, Aug. 15 at Oahu Country Club -- at $250 per person -- and last Friday at Hawaii Prince Hotel -- again for $250 per person.

Former Honolulu Mayor Mufi Hannemann, the Hawaii Independent Party candidate, has held one fundraiser, on Aug. 18 at Fresh Cafe Downtown. The suggested donation was $100.

    Hate to say it -- winner with this particular fundraising effort: Ige. Low cost, high-end place. Hope they get 'nough room, or what? They going let people eat in the lobby area, too? Can go up and down the elevator munching on foie gras.

    Maybe a Mea culpa'g for not showing up at the first debate, Mr. Ige? Hmmmm?

    That was not a debate, it was an ambush. Sen Ige made the right choice not to attend. He will attend a number of debates/forums as well as appear on televised debates.
