HMA, ophthalmologists back Aiona

The Hawaii Medical Association and the Hawaii Ophthalmological Society have endorsed Lt. Gov. James "Duke" Aiona for governor.

"Duke Aiona understands the need to put the public's interest above special interests, which includes enacting meaningful tort reform that protects our doctors and hospitals," Joseph Zobian, an ophthalmologist, said in a statement yesterday.

"It is a pleasure to reaffirm our commitment to Duke Aiona and all that he stands for," said Dr. Paul DeMare, chairman of HMA's political action committee.

Aiona is facing lawyer and former state lawmaker John Carroll in the GOP primary for governor.
