Hello,

Just currious,

I have noticed that in Hawaii, there have been many high office holders from both the GOP (Lingle) and the Democrats.

Just currious:

1. What type of people in Hawaii are part of the Hawaii Democratic party in terms of ethnicity and demographics and areas of influence?

2. What type of people in Hawaii tend to be part of the Hawaii Republican party in terms of ethnicity and demographics?


What are the ideologies of the local parties like?

Thanks

Huh? I don't know what you've read about Hawaii politics so far, but a close approximation for the 2013 legislative session is:
1 Republican State Senator vs 24 Democrats
7 Republican State Representatives vs 44 Democrats

The current Governor, 2 Senators, and 2 Representatives are all Democrats. The incoming Senator is a Democrat.

Republicans: about 25 people in the state

Democrats: everyone else

No wonder the economy is in a mess.

Those sorts of ratios and corresponding economic malaise are found elsewhere, as is the reverse.

I'm convined that people think that more of what has made things bad, will suddenly make it better.

If a six-pack gets you drunk, a whole case will sober you up, so to speak.

Doesn't work.

Many of us in Hawaii are taking the time to give our hearts a chance to mourn the passing of well respected Senator Daniel Inouye. He served Hawaii in Congress from 1963-2012.

Quote:
About a thousand people, from President Obama and members of Congress to World War II veterans and everyday citizens, gathered at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific to bid aloha to Sen. Daniel Inouye at services Sunday morning.
Quote:
The unit [442nd Regimental Combat Team] became one of the most decorated to serve in World War II, producing 21 Medal of Honor recipients, including Inouye, who was laid to rest with full military honors at a service at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific on Sunday.
Aloha Senator Danny Inouye!

As no one is interested in answering your question, you can go to this site which gives the names and photos of members of the Hawaii legislature, and that will give you some idea about the ethnicity part of your query.
