Ed Case will not run for the Hawaii 1st District in November……

[ Case , Hanabusa and Djou who recently won the seat….]

This welcomed news for the White House and Hawaii’s democratic Party…

This should clear the way fir Colleen Hanabusa to win the seat in November….since the Democratic vote will not be split….

What is interesting is that The Dog and Daniel have both pointed out that part of the problem here was that natives have pushed Case out of the race……

Former Rep. Ed Case (D-Hawaii), who recently finished third in a House special election, says he will not run in November against newly-minted GOP Rep. Charles Djou.

In an e-mail to supporters Sunday afternoon titled, “Heart Says Yes, Head Says No,” Case announced that, “today I’m withdrawing my candidacy for the U. S. House of Representatives from Hawai‘i’s great First District for the upcoming 112th Congress.”

The announcement came one week after Case and state Senate President Colleen Hanabusa split the Democratic vote in the May 22 special election for the Honolulu-based seat former Democratic Rep. Neil Abercrombie vacated to run for governor. Case finished in third place, an unexpected outcome for the former Democratic congressman.

Case, who faced fierce opposition during the campaign from the state Democratic establishment, initially said after the loss that he planned to run for the Democratic nomination for the full term. But Case told supporters Sunday that, “My heart tells me to stay in this fight, but my head says this has become the wrong fight.”

From Daniel……

Hello Folks!

WHAT A STUNNER THIS EVENING. We’ve BREAKING NEWS out of the “Aloha State”. Former U. S. Rep. Ed Case (D-HI) has ENDED his Campaign for the Hawai’i First Congressional District Race POLITICO reports.

http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0510/37960.html

It’ll be Hanabusa vs. Djou in November and with now likely 2 NATIVES atop of the Hawai’i Ticket (Hannemann & Inouye) this Race should now be rated as Likely Democratic for November.

I bet there was mounting Pressure from Senators Inouye and Akaka to Case to drop his Bid.
