Candidates for governor debate, minus Ige

Three out of four candidates for Hawaii governor say they agree Hawaii's health exchange is a mess, taxes are burdensome and leadership style in the state's top office needs to change.

The fourth - and most formidable opponent to each of the other candidates - was absent Friday during the first debate of the general election after a disagreement with organizers.

Democrat nominee David Ige was mentioned frequently during the 90-minute debate between Republican James "Duke" Aiona, Independent Party candidate Mufi Hannemann and Libertarian Jeff Davis.

Aiona says his campaign is about transparency. Hanneman says he'd key on Hawaii's troubled health exchange and revive a failed plan for an interisland ferry. Davis says he wants to get money out of politics and emphasize that the campaign is a four-way race.
