Case Will Seek Akaka's Seat

"I apologized," Case said, according to the Star-Advertiser. "I told him that I regretted very much the circumstances under which he has opposed me. And I apologized for any offense caused there." "And he accepted both and we had a very good discussion. It was open, relaxed, cordial -- exactly what needed to happen," he added. Republicans are hoping former Gov. Linda Lingle, a strong fundraiser with high name identification will enter the race. Lingle said last November she would decide within six months. Djou has also hinted he could run for the seat, but he'll defer to Lingle. Democrats appear likely to hold Akaka's seat in the blue state in 2012, and having President Obama at the top of the ticket -- Obama remains extremely popular in the state where he spent much of his youth -- will be a boost for whoever emerges as the Democratic nominee.
