In Hawaii, there are two Democrats: Former Representative Ed Case and State Senate President Hanabusa who are vying with one Republican in a special election for a House seat.
They are destined to split the vote and allow Charles Djou to win with about 36% of the vote.
though the latest polls show Case (28) and Hanabusa(22) with a Democratic majority.
Case should withdraw. Even though the Republican would probably still win this special election, there is a rematch in November. He apparently broke his word to the Hawaii delegation about a primary challenge to current Senator Akaka.
In politics, your word is all you have. Case could have fudged or avoided an answer.
But you don't say you aren't challenging someone, and then go ahead and do so.
If you do, then you must make it right somehow according to them.
We need integrity to matter more in politics.
That starts with personal responsiblity.
For this special election.
For the primary in September.
Support State Representative Colleen Hanabusa for the House of Representatives.
