Notes:
As expected Sen. Mazie Hirono (D) had little difficulty in her bid for a second term.  Hirono has a long record of public service: in the Hawaii State House (1981-94), as lieutenant governor (1994-2002) and as three-term member of the U.S. House (first elected in Nov. 2006).  She faced Ron Curtis (R), a retired computer engineer, who topped the field of eight candidates in the Aug. 11 Republican primary with 19.5 percent of the vote. 

Hirono and Curtis debated on "Insights on PBS Hawai'i" broadcast on Nov. 1 (+).

In 2016 Hillary Clinton carried Hawaii by 32.18 percentage points, and the race between Sen. Brian Schatz (D) and John Carroll (R) was the most lopsided of the 34 U.S. Senate contests in the country; Schatz's margin was 51.36 percentage points.  This race was similarly lopsided.
