A hurricane is heading for Hawaii — just in time for the state's Saturday primaries.
The storm's landing could wreak havoc on the state's numerous competitive Democratic primaries, including battles between Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) and Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-Hawaii) and between Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie (D) and his challenger, state Sen. David Ige (D).
The storm could depress turnout and hurt the campaigns' last-minute pushes to turn out their voters, especially if it sticks around through Saturday.
Iselle is expected to weaken to a tropical storm as it gets close to the islands.
This isn't the first time a major storm has triggered campaign chaos. Hurricane Sandy ravaged the East Coast shortly before the 2012 elections, depressing turnout in the areas where damage was highest.
