HONOLULU (KHNL) - Working the crowd during the lunchtime rush at the Iwilei Costco, Gov. Linda Lingle thanked voters for their support.

"They really have supported us throughout these four years," Lingle said. "The majority of people whenever we have asked them to step forward and take a part in their community they've done that."

Running for her second term, the governor said she still has things she wants to accomplish in office.

"We've worked collaboratively with so many different groups on education issues, on the drug issue in our state, passing tougher criminal laws," Lingle said.

Republican senatorial candidate Cynthia Thielen campaigned in downtown Honolulu, looking to meet as many voters as possible.

"They like my message, they like my energy," Thielen said."They believe that I will do what I say I will do which is change our nation's energy policy and get us off of foreign oil."

Democrats spent the weekend campaigning on Oahu. Sen. Dan Akaka headed to the Big Island Monday morning to meet victims of last month's earthquakes. He was scheduled to join gubernatorial candidate Randy Iwase at a traditional Democratic election eve rally in Hilo.
