Even in his ad endorsing Neil Abercrombie for re-election it’s as if President Obama knew what was coming:

Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie, who faced a primary challenge from David Ige, a state senator, was backed by Obama in the liberal state of Hawaii. So how did that go for Abercrombie?

“Change”:

Hawaii Democratic Gov. Neil Abercrombie, in a historic loss, was soundly defeated in Saturday’s primary by a state senator, while the island’s marquee U.S. Senate race remained too close to call.

Abercrombie’s loss to state Sen. David Ige makes him the first sitting governor in state history to lose a primary for reelection. It came amid concerns about tax hike proposals and his leadership style.

With 99 percent of the precincts reporting, Ige had received 67.4 percent of the vote to 31.5 percent for Abercrombie.

Audio from Abercrombie HQ last night:

If Obama was political kryptonite for some Dems up to now, just wait until we get closer to November.
