      GOP's Djou In Danger In Hawaii

      In what otherwise seems to be shaping up to be a big Republican year, this is the rare case of a Republican incumbent in trouble. But it's not necessarily a surprise. The sequence of events is thus: Rep. Neil Abercrombie (D) resigned his seat to focus on his race for governor. Two Democrats -- ex-Rep. Ed Case and state Sen. Colleen Hanabusa -- refused to back off from their desire to run in the May special election. With the Democratic vote split, Charles Djou won, with 39 percent of the vote. Democrats pooh-poohed the result, but Republicans gloated that President Obama's birthplace is now represented by an "R." But Case, who finished third in the special election, decided not to run again, leaving the Democratic field for Hanabusa. Djou is hoping his moderate record will attract the votes of independents in November.
