Caldwell 43.7% to Djou 42.8% (Final Summary)

Hawaii Co Mayor:

Kim 48% to Lau 25% (1st read) -- Kim up to 49.1% on 2nd read -- will he be able to avoid runoff?

3rd Read -- Kim over the top at 50.4% -- no runoff


No Senators and only one House Rep defeated in Primary --  Democrat Jo Jordan HD44.  And Dems are complaining that their Party failed to knock her opponent Cedric Gates off the ballot as 'ineligible' under Dem rules because he had been a Green Party candidate in 2014.

Anti-GMO Losers Statewide:

1) Incumbent Gary Hooser in 9th place for Kauai Council (same on 2nd read).  On 3rd read, Hooser is still in 9th place and Joanne Yukimura is 8th with 16 of 16 precincts reporting. Top 13 go to 7-seat Nov runoff.

2) Incumbent Margaret Willie losing to Tim Richards 51-42 for Hawaii Co Council Dist 9 (same on 2nd read).  On 3rd read with 3 of 3 reporting, Richards wins 49-44%.  

3) Trinette Furtado losing 52-25 for Maui Council -- tightens slightly on 2nd read--will Mike White be forced into runoff?  3rd read: White 49.6% vs Furtado 28.5% heading for Nov. runoff.

4) Tiare Lawrence losing 57-37 for the Democratic nomination for HD12 Maui (tightens to 55-40% on 2nd read)

5) Fern Rosenstiel losing 66-28% for the Democratic nomination for HD14 Kauai (little change on 2nd read with 3 of 5 pcts reporting)

6) HD13 Molokai, Lanai, E Maui: Anti-GMO Haller crushed by DeCoite 56-35%.

Interesting note: In 2014, election day voters were 2-1 anti-GMO but mail in voters were 2-1 pro-GMO.  In 2016, election day voters appear to be little different than mail-in voters.  Lesson: Anti-GMO hype is old.  See 'arch of hysteria.'
