HONOLULU (AP) - After a year of tough campaigning, Gov. Neil Abercrombie is preparing to vacation on Maui.

Abercrombie, who became governor on Dec. 6, will begin his vacation with his wife Nancie Caraway on Saturday in the small town of Hana on the island's eastern end.

Spokeswoman Donalyn Dela Cruz says Abercrombie will remain there until Jan. 3.

She says there are no current plans for the governor to meet President Barack Obama, who is vacationing with his family in Kailua. Abercrombie is an old friend of Obama's.

The governor won two difficult campaigns this year - the September Democratic primary against ex-Honolulu Mayor Mufi Hannemann, and the November general election against Republican Lt. Gov. James "Duke" Aiona.
