The Maui News - Lt. Gov. Shan Tsutsui has received the endorsements of the Ironworkers Union Local 625 and Sheet Metal Union Local 293 as he seeks re-election in 2014. He became the first Mauian to serve as lieutenant governor when Gov. Neil Abercrombie appointed then-Lt. Gov. Brian Schatz to replace U.S. Sen, Dan Inouye. State law says that the president of the state Senate, who was Tsutsui, is first in the line of succession for lieutenant governor. Tsutsui agreed to succeed Schatz.
