Charles Djou (R-HI)

Just savor the moment, of a Republican member of the House of Representatives from Hawaii.  If you don't know about Hawaii's Democratic propensity (or is it addiction?), this is akin to San Francisco electing a Republican to replace Nancy Pelosi.

I admit, it might be tough for him to win re-election in November.  Djou only received 40% of the vote, and the two Democrats split most of the rest of the vote:
The two Democrats also turned their eyes toward the party primary in September, as both vowed to continue the fight for the right to face Djou in a one-on-one vote in November.
If they had any sense, one of them would have dropped out, and the other would almost certainly have beaten Djou. But what was it Will Rogers said? "I am not a member of an organized political party. I am a Democrat."


  1. "the two Democrats split most of the rest of the vote"

    Is there any reason that couldn't happen in November?

  2. Yes, because there will be a primary election to pick a Democratic candidate.
