Four days after questioning a death-bed letter at the center of Hawaii’s heated U.S. Senate race, Gov. Neil Abercrombie apologized to the widow of its ascribed author, the late Sen. Daniel Inouye , and others he offended. But he stuck to his key assertion Inouye told him the choice of a successor was his alone to make.

Introduction
I'm a political writer at the Los Angeles Times, a veteran of 35+ years of newspapering--I started in my teens--now covering my 10th presidential campaign (among many other stories.) I've covered campaigns and elections in 49 of the 50 states and am determined to get to Rhode Island someday. I love hearing from readers, even if it's to say that you think I'm an idiot and/or full of, um, beans. Send your comments to mark.barabak@latimes.com.
