Aloha, Senator Inouye

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

ALOHA, SENATOR INOUYE

Hawaii and the nation are mourning the sudden passing of Senator Daniel Inouye. Now, the process of saying goodbye begins. This morning at 5 AM Hawaii time on the House floor, Congresswoman Mazie Hirono will give a statement. We'll bring that to you live on Sunrise. We'll also talk with the Senator-Elect by phone.

REMEMBERING HAWAII'S SENIOR SENATOR

Reaction to Senator Inouye's death is pouring in from his longtime colleagues in Washington D.C., Hawaii and even from his favorite Zippy's Restaurant. Hear how a man described by President Obama as a "true American hero" is being remembered.

SENATOR INOUYE'S LIFE IN PICTURES

He's represented Hawaii in Congress since statehood, but the Senator's life of service started after the attack on Pearl Harbor. From World War II hero, to the First Japanese American elected to the U.S. House and Senate, to potential Vice Presidential candidate in the 1968 election to third in line to succeed the President, see the Senator's life in pictures in a slideshow posted on HawaiiNewsNow.com.

CHANGING OF THE GUARD

With the loss of Senator Inouye and the retirement of Senator Akaka, Hawaii's seniority in Congress will take a big hit. How does the State re-load with the next generation? National correspondents and political analyst Dr. John Hart will join us on Sunrise to talk about the stakes for the State, and what must happen now to appoint his successor.

ALOHA & MAHALO, SENATOR

The Senator's last word, according to his staff, was "aloha." We know you join us when we say "aloha and mahalo Senator." We'll look back at his life and what his loss means for the State this morning on Sunrise.

Aloha,

Tannya Joaquin
