Honolulu City Councilman Joey Manahan announced Friday that he will run for the U.S. House of Representatives 1st District seat this fall.

The seat is being left without an incumbent because Congresswoman Colleen Hanabusa is foregoing a re-election bid to challenge incumbent U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz.

Manahan joins fellow Council members Ikaika Anderson and Stanley Chang in the race that also features state senators Will Espero and Donna Mercado Kim, state Rep. Mark Takai and community activist Kathryn Xian.

First elected to the Counci in 2012 after serving in the state House, Manahan represents the Kalihi-Moanalua area.

Manahan will not need to give up his four-year Council seat to run for Congress.
