Former Lt. Gov. James “Duke” Aiona is telling allies that he intends to run for governor.

The Republican, who lost to Gov. Neil Abercrombie in 2010, indicated his plans on The Fish, a Christian radio station, this morning.

“He has declared,” said David Chang, the state GOP chairman.

Chang said Aiona is planning a “soft launch” and will hold a formal campaign event later.

Aiona served as lieutenant governor for two-terms under former Gov. Linda Lingle.

Aiona has consistently said that his only political aspiration is Washington Place.

Abercrombie is facing state Sen. David Ige in the Democratic primary.
