Abercrombie, Ige debate blame for Hawaii's issues

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) A debate between Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie and state Sen. David Ige revealed few major differences in their future visions of Hawaii.

Both Democratic candidates want to solve Hawaii's housing problems, support Native Hawaiian sovereignty and improve the state's troubled health exchange.

They also both want to keep gambling out of Hawaii and improve its public education system.

The primary rivals are split more on who's to blame for Hawaii's issues than they are on how to solve those problems.

The Democratic candidates are both campaigning to be Hawaii's next governor. They met Tuesday at a forum at the Honolulu Japanese Chamber of Commerce.

Abercrombie says he has improved the state's economy over the last four years. Ige says he cut the governor's spending requests to responsibly balance the budget.
