How's that for a referendum on Obama and the Democrats?
From the Honolulu Star Bulletin:
Republican Charles Djou emerged victorious tonight in the special election to fill Hawaii's vacancy in Congress, giving Hawaii it's first GOP member of Congress in 20 years.The Dems might have pulled out a win in the special election in Pennsylvania by running a candidate who falsely claims to be a conservative. In Hawaii, voters got something closer to the real deal.
“This is a momentous day,” Djou told a jubilant crowd at state party headquarters. “We have sent a message to the United States Congress. We have sent a message to the ex-governors. We have sent a message to the national Democrats! We have sent a message to the machine.
“We have told them that we will not stand idly by as our great nation is overburdened by too much taxes, too much debt and too much wasteful spending.”
Djou is Hawaii's first GOP member of Congress since Pat Saiki, who represented the party from 1987 to 1991.
Only 39 seats left to take before we boot Nancy Pelosi from the Speaker's Chair!
