Fired up and ready to go four years ago, Hawaii delegates to the Democratic National Convention were just as enthusiastic Thursday night after President Barack Obama laid out his vision for the next four years in accepting his party’s nomination for another term in the White House.
“I couldn’t be more excited,” Gov. Neil Abercrombie said by telephone from Charlotte, N.C. “What an atmosphere.”
He called the Hawaii-born president’s speech the capping moment of a weeklong buildup of momentum that aims to energize the party base and set the tone for the general election season.
