Hawaii donors backing Djou Congressional campaign draw national attention

From The Hill:  Another notable cash-on-hand total was the $150,000 reported by Honolulu City Councilman Charles Djou (R) in Hawaii’s 1st district.

Djou formed his fundraising committee in November 2007, although he was not the Republican nominee in the 1st district last cycle. But now that Rep. Neil Abercrombie (D) is running for governor, Djou hopes to earn that distinction, and he appears to be a strong candidate in what is generally considered a reliably Democratic district.

On the Democratic side, former Rep. Ed Case, who held the 2nd district seat for four-plus years, entered the race March 28 and raised $21,000 by the March 31 filing deadline. Other potential Democratic candidates in the district include state Senate President Colleen Hanabusa, Honolulu Mayor Mufi Hannemann, Honolulu City Councilman Duke Bainum, former state House Majority Leader Kirk Caldwell and state Democratic Party Chairman Brian Schatz.
