Washington Post: Hawaii 1st District Election 2010: Rep. Charles Djou takes on Colleen Hanabusa for reelection

article top

Hawaii’s 1st District features an interesting race between Rep. Charles Djou (R-HI) and Colleen Wakako Hanabusa. While Hawaii traditionally votes Democratic, its proclivity to return incumbents to office may work in Djou’s favor.

Only the second Republican ever elected from Hawaii to the House, Djou won a May 2010 mail-in special election to succeed Rep. Neil Abercrombie (D-Hawaii), who resigned to focus on the 2010 governor’s race.

  1. Note to those who oppose the Akaka bill: I believe you should also oppose Charles Djou. He gave an interview on the OHA radio program strongly supporting the Akaka bill. Furthermore, he explained why he would be far more effective than Colleen Hanabusa in getting the Akaka bill passed. I believe he is correct. Therefore I recommend voting against him.
