LIHU‘E — Mayor Bernard P. Carvalho Jr. on Friday defended his decision to back former Honolulu Mayor Mufi Hannemann in the contentious Democratic gubernatorial primary.…

Hannemann outpolled former U.S. Rep. Neil Abercrombie on Kaua‘i by six votes, 7,039 to 7,033, but Abercrombie creamed Hannemann 142,304 to 90,590 statewide, taking 59.3 percent of the vote compared to Hannemann’s 37.7 percent.

There are some in the Democratic Party who feel voters favoring Republican Lt. Gov. Duke Aiona for governor threw their primary votes behind Abercrombie because they saw Hannemann as a stronger challenger to Aiona, the Republican nominee for governor.

Asked if he would endorse any gubernatorial candidate now that Hannemann is out of the race, Carvalho said, “As for further endorsements, I’m not prepared to do so at this time but may at a later date.”
