Another Democrat is expressing interest in the U.S. Senate seat left vacant by the death this week of Daniel Inouye.

State Sen. Donna Mercado Kim said in a news release that she will submit her name for consideration. Kim represents Kalihi Valley and Halawa.

At least two other Democrats have already announced plans to apply: U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa and Lt. Gov. Brian Schatz.

Inouye, in a letter to Gov. Neil Abercrombie, said his last wish was for Hanabusa to succeed him. Abercrombie will ultimately choose Inouye’s successor from a list of three candidates submitted by the state Democratic party.

The party’s central committee plans to meet Dec. 28. 

The deadline for applications is Monday.
