Former U.S. Rep. Neil Abercrombie officially entered the governor’s race this morning.
On his first day after leaving Congress, Abercrombie filed nomination papers with the state Office of Elections in Pearl City.

Abercrombie will open his campaign headquarters in Ward Warehouse on Saturday. The originally scheduled opening was postponed because of the tsunami warning.
“I am more energized, more determined and more committed than ever,” Abercrombie said in a statement.
“In my 19 years in the Congress, I put my entire focus on representing the people of Hawaii. Now, I am putting everything into becoming the people’s governor.”
