  •  Well given how less established Gabbard is (3+ / 0-)

    I think Schatz beats her easily. Hanabusa has been in multiple offices for a long while now and her donor base is probably much more extensive. Plus there's the whole Inouye connection and Gabbard probably loses something like 58-42 to Schatz in the primary under the best case. Gabbard though I could never see running against him as she can clearly wait until Hirono retires and then waltz into the senate after accumulating a lot of good will and acquiring a larger donor base. If she is as liberal as Hirono I say good for her too, but she isn't a fool and I don't think she'd so opportunistically run against Schatz in 2014.
