Hawaii just became the first state to elect a 100 percent one-party state Senate since 1979

Hawaii just became the first state to elect a 100 percent one-party state Senate since 1979

In 2010, 2012, and 2014, Republican state Sen. Sam Slom was the only member of his party to win a single seat in the Hawaii state Senate. However, in 2016 he finally lost to former Democratic Honolulu City Councillor Stanley Chang by a 53-47 margin after 20 years of representing the 9th District on Oahu’s southeastern shore. As one supporter facetiously quipped when Chang canvassed his neighborhood, now that they have every seat, Hawaii Democrats finally “can get a lot of things done.”
