Republican wins House Seat Obama’s Home district

Djou wins U.S. House seat – Hawaii News –   <— 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.
