Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-Hawaii) will challenge appointed Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) in a primary next year, according to someone with knowledge of her plans.

Hanabusa had been trying to decide in recent days between running against Schatz and challenging Gov. Neil Abercrombie (D) in 2014. As Post Politics reported Friday, she met with the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee on Thursday, but the committee said this week that it will back Schatz.
