Lt. Gov. James “Duke” Aiona, the Republican candidate for governor, has not made his opposition to civil unions a significant part of his campaign.
But, behind the scenes, many of Aiona’s conservative supporters have used civil unions to motivate voters. On Friday, two big rig trucks circling the state Capitol had activists with both Aiona-Finnegan and “No HB444″ signs.
This video was posted on YouTube warning of the consequences if former U.S. Rep. Neil Abercrombie, the Democrat, is elected governor. Abercrombie has said he would sign the civil-unions bill into law.
