Last week, a Washington Post political blog asked readers to identify the top political dynasty in each of the 50 states.
The results are in, and the answer for Hawaii is the Farringtons. Here’s the blurb:
Territorial Hawaii governor Wallace Farrington was the father of Joe Farrington, who along with his wife, Betty, served as congressional delegates from the state in the 1940s and ’50s. Joe Farrington is credited with bringing Hawaii its statehood, earning the nickname “Statehood Joe.”
What do you think? Is “Farrington” the most famous and familiar political last name in Hawaii?
