Congratulations to Congressman-elect Charles Djou!

He just won President Obama's childhood district in the special election in Hawaii after the national Democrats ended up in a civil war with the local Democrats. Obama got 70 percent of the vote there in 2008.

Djou won 39.5 percent of the vote. Hanabusa, the DCCC candidate, got 30.8 percent. Case, the local Dems and union candidate, got 27.6 percent.

More:

Djou will be the first Republican to represent Hawaii in Congress since Pat Saiki, who served from 1986-1990. He will have to begin campaigning again almost immediately, as the seat will be up for grabs again in the November general election.

This breaks the six eleven (see correction) seat special election streak Democrats have been on in the House. Correction: it looks like it was an eleven seat streak (counting PA-12).
