Congratulations to Charles Djou, Congress’ newest member and the first GOP representative from Hawaii in 20 years:
“Republicans cited Rep.-elect Charles Djou’s victory for a seat long out of their reach as evidence of steadily increasing election-year strength, but Democrats said Sunday the winner’s 40-percent vote share portends a short stay in Congress for him and predicts nothing about the fall.”
I don’t think it means much either, except that neither of two Democratic candidates would give up. But it’s nice while it lasts.
UPDATE: Jim Miller looks at Djou’s win and chances for re-election.
