Ed Case launches congressional bid


    Ed Case spoke in August at a public informational briefing on state funding for Honolulu’s rail project, as part of Outrigger Enterprises Group.

Former Congressman Ed Case has joined the race for the U.S. House of Representatives, vying for the seat representing urban Honolulu.

Case, who currently serves as senior vice president and chief legal officer for Outrigger Hotels Hawaii, confirmed that he filed papers with the State Office of Elections today, the last day to file nomination papers for the primary election on Aug. 11.

The seat is being vacated by U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa who is running for governor.

Case, 65, joins a competitive race for the 1st Congressional District seat. Other Democrats running include Lt. Gov. Doug Chin, state Reps. Beth Fukumoto and Kaniela Ing, state Sen. Donna Mercado Kim and Honolulu City Councilman Ernie Martin.

Case served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 2002 to 2007. He unsuccessfully challenged U.S. Sen. Daniel Akaka in the Democratic primary in 2006.
