File - In this Nov. 6, 2012 file photo, Democrat Colleen Hanabusa speaks after winning Hawaii 1st Congressional district seat at the Japanese Cultural Center in Honolulu. The Hawaii Democratic party is taking applications for the U.S. Senate seat left vacant by the death this week of Daniel Inouye. Inouye asked the governor to choose U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa, who is expected to apply, but the party is obligated to put forth three names for consideration. (AP Photo/Marco Garcia, File)
