Rothenberg Political Report: Djou Leading Hanabusa in 1st Congressional Race


The nonpartisan Rothenberg Political Report provides this analysis on Hawaii’s First Congressional District, giving Rep. Charles Djou the lead:

“Hawaii 1. With only one candidate in the race against GOP Cong. Charles Djou, Democrats are extremely confident that State Sen. Colleen Hanabusa will take this seat back for their party. In fact, this is one of four seats nationally that Democrats count in their column as they assert Republicans actually need to win 43 seats for a majority. But not so fast. There is little evidence that voters are willing to throw Djou out of office after only a couple months on the job. A private Democratic poll showed the congressman leading by double digits. This race is not over, and Djou may even have the advantage.” (Rothenberg Political Report, “2010 House Overview,” 09/24/10)
