Hanabusa, Schatz locked in tight primary race

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz has a slight lead over U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa but the race in Hawaii's U.S. Senate Democratic primary election remains too close to call.

Schatz had about 49 percent of the vote compared to Hanabusa, who had about 48 percent late Saturday night. The results in the tight race included more than 208,700 Democratic voters.

Two precincts on the Big Island have not yet voted because of damage from Tropical Storm Iselle. Hanabusa says voters there must feel great because they'll probably get to decide election.

The race is about who will replace U.S. Sen. Daniel Inouye. It's the first vote for the seat since the beloved political icon died in 2012 and Schatz was appointed as his replacement.
