Republican Charles Djou has won Hawaii’s special House election, providing a timely boost to a party unnerved by a decisive Democratic victory in a Pennsylvania special House election Tuesday.
Djou got 39 percent of the vote Saturday, according to unofficial returns, followed by state Senate President Colleen Hanabusa at 30 percent and former Democratic Rep. Ed Case at 27 percent.
Djou will serve out the remainder of the term in the seat left vacant by former Democratic Rep. Neil Abercrombie, who resigned to run for governor.
