WWII vet determined to vote dies at 93
HONOLULU — A World War II veteran who inspired many with his determination to vote even though he had end-stage liver cancer has died.
Frank Tanabe’s daughter Barbara Tanabe says he died Wednesday morning at her Honolulu home. He was 93.
Hundreds of thousands of people saw a photo of Frank Tanabe filling out his absentee ballot with the help of his daughter last week, after his nephew posted the picture on the social media site Reddit.
Frank Tanabe served in a mostly Japanese-American unit of the Military Intelligence Service during WWII. He volunteered to join the Army from the Tule Lake internment camp in California.
Honolulu elections officials say his vote will be counted unless they receive his death certificate before the Nov. 6 election and are able to single out his ballot from those submitted.
Libertarian halts campaign for state insurance seat
DOVER — The Libertarian Party candidate for Delaware insurance commissioner is suspending his campaign and endorsing the Republican challenger seeking to unseat a Democratic incumbent.
David Eisenhour said Wednesday that while suspending his campaign for insurance commissioner, he is still running for clerk of the peace in Sussex County.
Mr. Eisenhour said he is urging his supporters to back Republican Benjamin Mobley in the insurance commissioner race. He said Mr. Mobley has a more free-market approach than does incumbent Karen Weldin Stewart, who won a three-way Democratic primary in September.
Mr. Eisenhour said that when he accepted Libertarian Party’s nomination for insurance commissioner this spring, the only announced candidates were all Democrats, and that he thought voters deserved a choice.
