Schatz was appointed in 2012, following the passing of Sen. Daniel Inouye, and is up for re-election in 2014. He is running against Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI), favored by Inouye, in the primary.

Bloomberg will also return to his media company to help with the opinion vertical, Bloomberg View, after his term is up.

Progress overnight on deployment of new commenting system. We hope to move into a short beta-testing phase shortly.
