Hawaii’s Charles Djou Continues to Rise

You know a candidate is a serious contender when the opposition starts blasting away.  The problem for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) is that Republican Charles Djou is about as squeaky clean as congressional candidates come.  The recent subject of a CFIF profile, Djou is running hard on a platform of low taxes and economic growth, even signing the Americans for Tax Reform pledge.  Of course, to the DCCC’s ears, that sounds like backhanding the economic little guy.

Since Hawaii’s economy relies heavily on tourist dollars, it isn’t likely that Aloha State voters will buy what national Democrats are selling, even if House leadership decides to back one of the two contenders challenging Djou in the open special election on May 22nd.

Sometimes, voters just prefer good, honest, straightforward candidates.
