Djou (R, HI-1) wins Hawaii Special Election


For the first time in 20 years, a Republican, Charles Djou, (although not a social conservative) in a special election yesterday won the Congressional District 1 seat. This is significant because this district is the home district of President Barry Soetoro a/k/a Barack Obama where he was raised in Hawaii. Djou ran on a strong fiscal conservative platform. Unfortunately, his victory is dampened or overshadowed by his apparent support for abortion and homosexuality.

He will have to run again in the regular election in November. This time he will face only one Democratic opponent. The two strong Democratic opponents in yesterday’s election helped to split the vote giving the election to the Republican.

Nonetheless, Djou’s victory, like Scott Brown’s upset win in Massachusetts, is a sign that real change and hope will be the outcome of the November election. What we need are more real social and fiscal conservatives in Congress. Also, Djou may bring greater attention to the grave fiscal situation our nation now faces. He may make his voice heard over the next six months. He is enthusiastic and passionate personality.
