Meet The Candidate- Hawaii 1st District

Hawaii's 1st District will be up for grabs in a special election just as soon as current Rep. Neil Abercrombie resigns to pursue the Governorship. Enter Republican candidate Charles Djou.

While confusion remains over the date of the special election, it will be a “winner-takes-all” format, meaning it’s an open race without a primary and with no runoff — the candidate with a plurality of votes wins.

Democrats have two candidates in the race: former Rep. Ed Case (D) and state Senate President Colleen Hanabusa. But Honolulu Councilor Charles Djou is the only candidate on the GOP side.

Making things even more advantageous; the two Democrats are reputed to hate each other more than they love their party, and are unlikely to step aside for the other.

As of last October:

The results are in and Republican Congressional Candidate Charles Djou's cash-on-hand total--a key early measure of political support--beats that of Democrat Ed Case by more than 2-1. Djou, an outgoing Honolulu City Council member, also beats Senate President Colleen Hanabusa (D-Ko`olina) by more than 40-1.

I assume the money race has tightened up by now (if anybody knows different please put me some knowledge), but still, that's encouraging in such a blue state.

Here's Charles Djou's site. His essays in the 'Issues' tabs represent a solidly conservative POV. Very encouraging, very very encouraging. His biography page (yeah, the whole thing, pretty much):

Charles represents the area from Waikiki to Hawaii Kai on the Honolulu City Council. Before entering the City Council, Charles served in the Hawaii State House where he was the Minority Floor Leader. Charles has spent most of his life in Hawaii. Charles graduated from Punahou School and earned both a B.A. in Political Science and a B.S. in Economics from the University of Pennsylvania, Wharton School of Finance and Commerce, graduating magna cum laude with distinction. Charles earned his law degree from the University of Southern California law school.

Outside of the City Council, Charles serves as an officer in the U.S. Army Reserve. Charles also practices as an attorney specializing in business law and teaches at the University of Hawaii's William S. Richardson School of Law.

Charles is an active member of the community. He has served on the Board of Directors of the American Lung Association and is a former member of the Neighborhood Board. Charles is a member of the Young Business Roundtable, the Rotary Club, and the Hawaii Telecommunications Association. Charles is also a member of the Hawaii Republican Party, where he previously served as Vice Chair.

Lazybones.
