Charles Djou, a Republican Honolulu city councilman has won the normally safe Democratic seat in Congress from Barack Obama's hometown of Honolulu. It has been 20 years since a Republican represented the district.
However, prospects for holding onto the seat in the November general election are slim, since Djou received just under 40% of the vote, while two Democratic contenders, won almost 59% between them. Only because it was a special election to replace former Rep. Neil Abercrombie, and because Hawaii does not require a runoff election, does the deat fall to the GOP.
Nevertheless, an embarrassment for President Obama, and certainly a sign that Democrats have fallen in popularity with the radical agenda of Barack Obama.
