HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - In this edition of "Across the Aisle," we bring in two prominent politicians from both the democrat and the republican side. Former U.S. Reps. Colleen Hanabusa (D) and Charles Djou (R) came into the studio to talk about the heated presidential campaign.
First topic, there are clearly huge factions in the Republican party. Just last night, the three remaining candidates for that party all agree on one thing. They will not necessarily support the upcoming nominee, even though all of them promised they would in September according to CNN. We asked both representatives, with the clear problems in the GOP, should Governor John Kasich step down in order to help unite the remaining delegates?
The second topic addressed the superdelegate system in Hawaii. Currently, most of the democratic superdelegates have pledged their support for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard is the exception with her support firmly behind Senator Bernie Sanders. With 70% of Hawaii democratic voters supporting Sanders, does this show a disconnect between the party leaders and the people.
