Djou wins U.S. House seat – Hawaii News – Starbulletin.com. <— note, this was a special election.
Charles Djou will be the first Republican sent by Hawaii to Congress in 20 years. In the email, but not the news is a mention that Djou is a captain in the US Army Reserve. Two democrats running against him in the special election will be reduced to one by primary election, and Djou will face a combined vote, perhaps placing him at disadvantage in the general election. However even this first victory came as a shock to the regular media pundits.
