HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - One of the 14 candidates in the upcoming special election is questioning why he wasn't invited to the recent debates.

Steve Tataii says he doesn't have much money or support, but he still deserves to be heard.

"They have created a situation that has excluded me as a key major candidate. I will go to Congress and come up with solutions. I am a problem solver and some of these candidates are stealing my lines. I'm a problem solver", says Tataii.

Tataii says he's run for office 14 times but never won.

By the way, as a common practice across the country, the FCC lets television stations determine who participates in a live debate.

We chose our candidates for Monday's debate because they were far ahead in recent polls and we wanted to give them more time to outline their positions.
