Djou Sets Sights On Hanabusa Rematch

Hanabusa, too, has signaled that a decision on whether she will enter the Senate race will also likely come by August. Already, 2nd District Democratic Rep. Mazie Hirono has entered the Democratic Senate primary, as has former Rep. Ed Case. Hirono has already landed the endorsement of EMILY's List, a sign they prefer her over a potential candidacy by Hanabusa. If Hanabusa decides to enter the race, the more centrist Case could stand to benefit from potential vote-splitting between the two members of Congress. Djou was the beneficiary of vote-splitting between Case and Hanabusa during a three-way 2010 special election to fill former-Rep. and now-Gov. Neil Abercrombie's seat. Djou lost the seat to Hanabusa in the November general election. Even with the myriad possibilities facing Djou, the former congressman appears to be zeroing in on a bid for his old seat. "I'm moving in the direction of running again, for U.S. House, for my old seat," Djou said.
