Rail, Rail, Rail: It’s All About Rail!

It appears that anti-rail voters now have a clear choice when it comes to voting in the Nov. 6 general election.

For even more insight into how the upcoming election is becoming more and more about a single issue, check out Civil Beat Reporter Chad Blair’s story The Rail Election.

He puts the project into the context of other races, such as the contest between Mazie Hirono and Linda Lingle for U.S. Senate and the battle for Honolulu mayor.
