Former Honolulu Mayor Mufi Hannemann has announced he will run for governor as an independent, saying he is more likely to win if candidates from major parties split the vote.
The Hawaii Independent Party has filed enough signatures of registered voters with the state Office of Elections to satisfy the requirements for a new party.
Former U.S. Rep. Neil Abercrombie convincingly won the Democratic nomination for Hawaii governor and will face Republican Lt. Gov. James "Duke" Aiona in an attempt by Democrats to regain leadership of President Obama's birth state.
