Daily Briefing for April 22nd: Democrats - Say HI to Another Possible Loss

As Hawaii Goes So Goes the Nation? by Melody Kite (Edited - RJ)

Whatta Stunner!

Hawaii is one of the bluest states in the Union and it has nothing to do with the fact that it surrounded by the deep blue sea!

It looks as if the Red Tide Tsunami could even reach Dem-soaked Hawaii. Maybe, just maybe Obama is NOT THE 57TH STATE'S FAVORITE SON, and instead of notes of Blue Hawaii, the appropriate song is Red Sails in the Sunset!

How bad can it get for Democrats? Example #5,671 by Rick Moran

What would you say if I were to tell you that a was ahead in a special election House race in Hawaii?

Yes, you read that correctly. In Hawaii, Republicans are usually as rare as hens teeth. But the dissatisfaction with the Democrats runs so deep, that even in the bluest of blue states, the GOP is very competitive.

How competitive?

Republican Charles Djou has climbed 15 points in the polls since January and is now ahead in the deep blue state! Charles Djou is currently leading the field in the latest polling. Djou held a "money wave" today for his campaign. He was hoping to raise $100,000. It looks like he will make it. You still have time to donate to his campaign for .

UPDATE: Djou raised $105,888 in his money bomb exceeding his goal by $5,888!

The special election is May 22 so there is still a long way to go yet. And the winner of this race will have to run again in November. But make no mistake, a lot of Democrats will be sweating if Djou can pull this off.
