1. Hawaii is not alone with the pressure being applied in this election:

They're spending $1.6 million in Oregon this year to defeat labeling. It's unknown how that will turn out, but rural turnout is said to be very high.

They're also spending $4.7 million in Colorado and the outcome is uncertain.

They've spent $27.5 million this year alone to influence voters.

They spent $70 million in WA and CA to defeat a popular initiative with 3 weeks of intense media buying.

Numbers from link:

A lot of money. How much money do they expect to make in return it leaves one to wonder...

And this isn't even the Koch money being used. How about that...
