Joe Biden wins Hawaii presidential primary delayed by COVID-19
Biden won 16 of Hawaii's delegates and Sanders will take eight. Biden has a total of 1,566 delegates to the party's national convention, according to the count by the Associated Press. He needs 1,991 delegates to win the nomination, a threshold he is projected to reach in June.
A total of 35,044 voters cast ballots in the party-run primary. All ballots were cast by mail.The party had initially planned to hold the primary on April 4 and had expected most party members would vote by mail and some would cast ballots at about 20 in-person polling sites around the state.
It began mailing ballots to registered party members in early March back when Sanders and Biden were the two front-runners and Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard was still maintaining her long-shot bid for the nomination.But concerns about the spread of the coronavirus forced the party to announce on March 20 it would cancel plans for in-person voting and allow only mail ballots. To give those who expected to vote in person on April 4 a chance to cast a ballot, the party said it would mail another round of ballots to members and wait until late May for them to be returned and counted.
Amidst these shifts, Gabbard dropped out and endorsed Biden. Sanders ended his bid and endorsed Biden on April 13.Voters were instructed to mark their top three choices on paper ballots.Only candidates receiving at least 15 per cent of the votes cast in a given congressional district were to be allocated delegates. Votes for candidates who didn't receive at least 15 per cent were redistributed to voters' second-ranked choices, starting with the candidate who received the lowest number of votes.
Gabbard represents Hawaii's second congressional district in Congress, and got 4 per cent of the vote in the first round of voting. She was absent from the district during much of the year while she campaigned for the presidency in Iowa and New Hampshire. State Sen. Kai Kahele, a fellow Democrat, fiercely criticized her for neglecting her constituents and mounted a campaign for her seat, which covers suburban Honolulu and the more rural islands of the state. Not long after, Gabbard said she wouldn't run for reelection and would focus on her presidential bid.
Hawaii Democrats hired a contractor, Merriman River Group, to handle aspects of the election, including designing the vote-by-mail package and safely keeping returned ballots. The company has experience running elections for labour unions and organizations such as the Kauai Island Utility Cooperative, the electric utility on Kauai island.
The Republican Party of Hawaii cancelled its presidential caucus after President Donald Trump was the only candidate to declare for the ballot by the Dec. 2 deadline. The party is committing its national convention delegates to Trump. Read more: CTV News »

I would hope so considering he is the only candidate. Wouldn't look very good if he lost...LOL 'I'm going to beat Joe Biden' - Joe Biden When asked about it Joe said 'Arkansas is one of my favorite States! I love winning in Arkansas!' Then he sipped his juice and his psw wheeled him off. hawaiiisascrazyasitsrepresentation

Lawyer for Joe Biden accuser Tara Reade drops her as a clientThe attorney working with Tara Reade, the former Joe Biden Senate staffer who alleged he sexually assaulted her in the 1990s, said Friday he is no longer representing her, just two weeks after he first began working with her. No money? Smart lawyer! Dropped her? It would have registered on the Richter Scale
Lawyer says he is no longer representing Biden accuser Tara ReadeDouglas Wigdor said the decision to drop Reade came on Wednesday of this week, and that it wasn’t a reflection on the veracity of her claims. But he offered no specifics on why he and his firm are dropping her Not surprised, she doesn't pass the smell test & has an incredibly creepy vibe Joe Biden sexually harassed this blob?
Biden regrets being 'cavalier' after suggesting African-American Trump supporters 'ain't black' Joe Biden said he 'should not have been so cavalier' in comments earlier Friday in which he suggested African Americans who back U.S. President Donald Trump 'ain't black.' He is as ignorant as Trump and highlights exactly what the Democrats have always thought of the African American and Latino voter. His comment was not “cavalier” it was racist, dehumanizing and condescending. He didn't say 'Trump supporters' he said 'ANYONE' who doesn't vote for him 'ain't black!'
