CONGRESS

Brewer joins
Inouye and Cavasso
in general election


A nonpartisan candidate will be joining the big-name politicians in the congressional races in November's general election.

Jim Brewer will be on the Nov. 2 general election ballot for the U.S. Senate 2nd District (rural Oahu, neighbor islands), joining Democratic incumbent Daniel Inouye and former Republican state Rep. Cam Cavasso.

Brewer qualified for the general as a nonpartisan candidate by receiving more votes than Libertarian Lloyd Mallan, who also heads to the general. Mallan ran unopposed in yesterday's primary election.

Inouye beat challengers Brian Evans and Eddie Yoon in the Democratic primary, while Cavasso outdistanced pharmacist Richard Payne, attorney Jay Friedheim and inventor James DeLuze in the Republican primary.

Nonpartisan candidates qualify for the general by either receiving at least 10 percent of the total votes cast or a vote equal to the lowest vote received by a winning partisan candidate in the primary.

"It's not easy to do and so let's see what happens in the general," Brewer said.

Two other nonpartisan congressional candidates in yesterday's primary did not qualify to advance.

Brewer also qualified as a nonpartisan candidate in the general election for governor two years ago.

In the primaries for the 1st Congressional District (urban Honolulu), none of the candidates, incumbent Democrat Neil Abercrombie, Republican Dalton Tanonaka and Libertarian Elyssa Young, faced opposition and will meet in November.

For the 2nd Congressional District (rural Oahu, neighbor islands), Democrat Ed Case and Republican Mike Gabbard won their parties' primaries.

Case beat Hilo businessman John Gentile. Gabbard beat Oahu physician Inam Rahman, Kaneohe lifeguard Miles Shiratori and Maui chiropractor Jonathan Treat.
