Hawaii may be the most reliably Democratic state in the union.
In 2012, President Barack Obama won his home state of Hawaii by
more than 42 percentage points, a margin larger than in any other
state. Hawaii is so blue that its state senate seats only a single
Republican. That Republican is Senator Sam Slom, known by his
colleagues as the Lone Ranger.
Reason TV sat down with Slom to talk about what it’s like being
the only member of a minority part in a virtually single-party
state, as well as to discuss the history of Hawaiin politics and
what sort of future free market reforms could turn Hawaii into an
international trade hub.
Approximately 4 minutes.
