Spirited race seen for Lieutenant Governor

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) Four candidates are trying to unseat incumbent Lieutenant Governor Shan Tsutsui in the Democratic primary.

Political observers expect the primary to come down to Tsutsui and state Senator Clayton Hee, with a wild card being former TV journalist Mary Zanakis.

Other Democrats in the primary include Sam Puletasi and Miles Shiratori. Elwin P. Ahu and Warner Kimo Sutton are vying for the Republican nomination. Les Chang is the Hawaii Independent Party's candidate.

Hawaii Pacific University communications professor John Hart says Tsutsui lacks name recognition while Hee comes with some negative baggage. Hart says Zanakis could be a factor, as she's hoping voters remember her from her 22 years as a news reporter for KITV and KHON-TV.
