Hanabusa outspent Djou in Congressional election

By Star Advertiser staff


U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa spent nearly $1.2 million in her successful re-election campaign in November against former congressman Charles Djou, or about $10.29 a vote.

Djou spent more than $977,100, or about $10.09 a vote, according to federal campaign-finance reports.

Hanabusa, D-Hawaii, raised more than $1.2 million for her campaign. Djou, a Republican, brought in more than $695,600 and carried over money from previous campaigns.

Hanabusa defeated Djou 53 percent to 44 percent in their rematch in urban Honolulu's 1st Congressional District.

Better question--what's the difference between the Democratic or Republican party. Six or half a dozen. They're both a shade of gray to me. I voted in every election be it primary or general. It's sad that in most of the elections I voted for a candidate because he/she was what I considered the lesser evil. I hope there comes a time when i can vote for a candidate because I actually want him/her elected to office. Who cares which party a candidate belongs to so long as that person has integrity.

hanabusa is doing all she can to prolong an unsustainable way of living - would be better to have no representation from hawaii in the house of representatives. Doing nothing is too costly to the citizens of hawaii...

The paper reported Hanabusa was busy with meetings about the "fiscal cliff". Somebody tell me exactly what she is doing. Who the heck is she meeting with....her hair dresser?

That's a terrible ROI for a Republican. So much for fiscal acumen.
