Hee considers a run for Lt. Governor

There might be a challenge to Lt. Governor Shan Tsutsui in the August primary.

Long-time legislator Clayton Hee is taking a serious look at a run for that office.

Hee now serves as the chairman of the Senate Committee on Judiciary and Labor.

He told KHON2 that if his research says there is clear and convincing data that gives him a chance – he will run in the Democratic primary for lieutenant governor.

He did not say when he will make that decision.

The 61-year-old Hee has served 20 years in the legislature and 12 years as a trustee of the Office of Hawaiian Affairs.

The deadline to file for the 2014 election is June 3.
