HONOLULU – Former Hawaii Congressman Charles K. Djou filed his pre-primary financial report with the Federal Election Commission on July 28.  The Djou campaign reported having raised $48,926.48 for the 20-day period between July 1 and July 20 and holds $439,707.27 cash-on-hand for the remainder of the campaign.

Although Djou was the last major candidate to declare to run for Hawaii’s 1st Congressional District he holds the largest campaign war chest of any candidate running for this seat.

“Charles Djou’s campaign remains exceptionally strong and well-positioned for the election,” stated former State Rep. Barbara Marumoto, Djou’s campaign manager.  “We are excited that Charles’ message of returning a moderate and someone with seniority to the majority caucus for Hawai’i is connecting with voters.  We don’t take a single vote for granted and will continue to work hard every day.”

Djou represented Hawaii’s 1st Congressional District from 2010 to 2011.  Djou previously served as a Honolulu City Councilmember and State Representative.  Djou is also a combat veteran who served with the U.S. Army in Afghanistan.
