Marilyn Lee holds on to District 38 seat in Mililani

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - After most of Hawaii went to sleep last night after the third count from the polls were released, the race in House District 38 appeared to be a close win by Republican Shaun Kawakami.

But early Wednesday morning the fourth count, the unofficial final, was released that showed Democrat incumbent Marilyn Lee with a 17 vote lead.

Lee has been in the State House of Representatives since 1996.
