Hawaii’s candidates for governor are meeting for their final televised debate before the election.
Democrat Neil Abercrombie and Republican James “Duke” Aiona face off Friday night for an hourlong debate on KITV-TV.
Abercrombie, who stepped down from Congress to run for governor, recently changed his position on whether to appoint the state Board of Education when he voted for the measure this week.
Aiona, the incumbent lieutenant governor, has been responding to claims that he’s tied to an evangelical Christian group called the International Transformation Network.
The winner of the Nov. 2 general election will succeed Republican Gov. Linda Lingle.
