Voters in Hawaii’s first congressional district have received their ballots for the special election.  As the only candidate who lives in the district and can vote in the upcoming election, Charles Djou and his family mailed in their ballots in Honolulu this weekend.

Also this weekend, the Honolulu Advertiser released a poll showing that Djou’s message of “lower taxes, limited government and fiscal responsibility is resonating” throughout the district.  Here is just a sampling of recent headlines on the race:

“Hawaii Poll: Djou leads Democratic rivals in congressional race” (Honolulu Advertiser, 05/02/10)

“Honolulu City Councilman Charles Djou has the advantage in the special election for Congress… Djou said he believes his message of lower taxes, limited government and fiscal responsibility is resonating.”

“Djou leading Case and Hanabusa in race for Congress” (HawaiiNewsNow, 05/03/10)

“A Hawaii News Now-Honolulu Advertiser poll shows that Republican candidate Charles Djou has a big lead in the special election for Congress…If Djou does defeat the Democrats, it will send a big message, especially coming in President Obama's home state, taking a seat that's been held by a Democrat for decades.”

“Djou Leads In New Advertiser Poll” (Hotline On Call, 05/02/10)

“A new Honolulu Advertiser poll -- released as ballots for the HI-01 special election are being mailed -- shows Honolulu Councilor Charles Djou (R) leading his top two Dem challengers… This survey…shows that voters are brushing aside a torrent of anti-Djou attack ads that have been airing across the CD since early Apr.”

“Djou opens up lead” (Politico, 05/02/10)

“Republican Honolulu City Councilman Charles Djou appears to be expanding his lead in this month’s race for an open Hawaii House seat in a new poll out Sunday.”

“Republican Charles Djou Leads in Hawaii” (The Atlantic, 05/02/10)

“It's going to be tough for Democrats to retain control of Hawaii's first congressional district, according to a new poll from The Honolulu Advertiser and Hawai'i News Now.”

“Poll shows GOPer leading in Hawaii special election” (The Hill, 05/02/10)

“A Republican candidate appears ahead in a May 22 special election to fill the Hawaii seat resigned by Rep. Neil Abercrombie (D). 36 percent of voters in Hawaii's First Congressional District said they would support Honolulu Councilor Charles Djou (R) in the election this month, a plurality of votes in the race.”

“Republican hopes in Hawaii special rise with new poll” (Washington Post, 05/03/10)

“The Advertiser poll suggests that the ongoing back and forth between Hanabusa and Case is -- not surprisingly -- accruing to Djou's benefit, allowing him to run as a non-partisan problem solver, which is a great message in this climate.”
