Hawaii Campaign Watch: This week in election races

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) Hawaii saw three televised debates this week in the state's top three political races, including two back-to-back on Thursday night.

State Sen. David Ige showed a more aggressive side in a Democratic primary debate for governor, interrupting Gov. Neil Abercrombie as they argued about a failed proposal to enroll more children in preschool.

Abercrombie asked Ige how he could deny 17,000 children the opportunity for preschool education. Ige responded that the plan was incomplete and didn't have funding plans.

Democratic candidates also debated this week in Hawaii's races for U.S. House and U.S. Senate.

Abercrombie's campaign said this week it raised $883,000 from January through June, the current campaign reporting period. Ige raised nearly $243,000 during the same period, according to his campaign.
