HONOLULU (AP) - Hawaii's Democrats notched overwhelming victories as they rolled over Republicans in midterm elections and cemented their control over the state's highest offices.

Gov. David Ige easily won re-election over state Rep. Andria Tupola to secure a second four-year term. Democrats won all three contests for Congress by large margins.

Ige told supporters after his win that he was proud to stand up to President Donald Trump and the Republican Party.

Tupola conceded the race but told supporters she wasn't done leading.

She vowed to continue to address Hawaii's high housing costs, a top issue in her campaign and for Hawaii voters.
