Since I'm up and on the West Coast (and slightly drunk), I'll do a returns thread. Right now, it doesn't look good for Case.
Akaka (D) 87,102 54.85% 228 out of 353 reported
Case (D) 71,712 45.15% 228 out of 353 reported
In order to pull this out, Case would need to win around 59% of the vote in the remaining precincts.
Also, voting's going smoothly.
Update (Chris): Akaka wins by about 9.5%. In the House race, Mazio Hirono seems to have edged out Colleen Hanabusa by 800 votes. I have no idea if one or the other or both or neither is the "progressive" candidate. Well done to all. Now it is on to the general election nationwide.
Case looks kind of mad.
