Saying he expects another Republican gubernatorial candidate to soon emerge, state Rep. Bob McDermott (R-Ewa Beach) ended his gubernatorial effort yesterday. The individual to which he refers may be state House Minority Leader Andria Tupola (R-Kalaeloa), who has been considering the race. Gov. David Ige (D) is seeking re-election, but may receive a strong Democratic primary challenge from US Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-Honolulu) and/or Kauai Mayor Bernard Carvalho.
