    Hawaii’s two members of the U.S. House of Representatives diverged in Wednesday’s historic vote to impeach President Donald Trump for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. U.S. Rep. Ed Case joined his Democratic colleagues who overwhelmingly voted in favor of the two articles of impeachment, while U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard abstained from voting. She registered instead as being “present.”

    NOW: Attorney General William Barr is testifying before a Congressional committee about the Justice Department’s budget. But it's not just the budget: Barr will likely be grilled on special counsel Robert Mueller's report on the Russia investigation, and Barr's short summary of it. He could also face questions about immigration and the border. Rep. Ed Case, a Democrat from Hawaii, just held up one of the most coveted documents of the Robert Mueller investigation as a prop to criticize what are sure to be the coming redactions. It's the Aug. 2017 memo from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to Mueller,...

    Rep. Ed Case apologized Wednesday after he claimed at an event for Asian American and Pacific Islander voters that he’s an “Asian trapped in a white body.” Mr. Case, a Hawaii Democrat, sparked a social media backlash over the reported comment he made Tuesday at a Washington event billed as a “celebration of Asian American and Pacific Islander members of the 116th Congress.” According to National Journal fellow Nicholas Wu, Mr. Case, who represents a majority Asian district in Honolulu, declared at the event, “I’m an Asian trapped in a white body.”

Doug Chin’s 28,284, a 39 percent to 25 percent lead, with most of the votes counted late last tonight.

    * Democrat Daniel Akaka, 86, is retiring from Senate * Lingle is heavily favored to win Republican primary * Republican has set up her own cable TV station HONOLULU, Aug 11 (Reuters) - Voters in Hawaii went to the polls on Saturday in a primary expected to set up Republicans for their first real chance at a U.S. Senate seat in the heavily Democratic state since 1970. A victory by former governor Linda Lingle, who has an early edge in fundraising, in President Barack Obama's home state could also help Republicans take control of the U.S. Senate as they battle...

    Please take a moment to help FREEP this poll. It is an online poll for the Honolulu Advertiser, and it is for the election to replace the seat vacated by former U.S. Rep. Neil Abercrombie. Hawaii has a legitimate chance to be Massachusetts The Sequel, with Charles Djou (R), a fiscal, common-sense conservative, challenging the union-backed Colleen Hanabusa (D) and Democrat Ed Case (who paints himself as a "moderate" and "independent" but is really another tax-and-spender). The narrative played out in local media is that Charles is a longshot, but Cook Political Report has revised their assessment twice so far,...

    HONOLULU -- Rep. Ed Case's senatorial campaign released selected results of one of its polls on Tuesday, which show Case virtually tied with fellow Democrat Sen. Dan Akaka in the race for the U.S. Senate. It is the first poll to be made public since Case announced he was challenging Akaka in January. A research firm hired by Case's campaign carried out the poll, and he released only portions of the data. The poll taken by the Honolulu firm Q-Mark Research and Polling found the race between Akaka and Case is very close four months away from the primary election....

    HONOLULU -- Hawaii Rep. Ed Case is expected to run against fellow Democrat Sen. Dan Akaka this fall, according to sources. Case telephoned Akaka earlier in the day to inform the senator of his decision, sources said. "Our Hawaii has been served ably and with great distinction by generations of U.S. Senators, including Sen. Daniel Akaka. Like all of our Hawaii, I have the deepest aloha for Sen. Akaka and truly honor his decades of selfless service. But we all know that we are in a time of transition our Hawaii's representation in Congress and especially in the Senate. "This...

    Democrat Ed Case Wins Hawaii Election By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Filed at 8:26 p.m. ET HONOLULU (AP) -- Democrat Ed Case beat out 43 other candidates to win a wide-open special election in Hawaii's 2nd District and become the final member selected to the 108th Congress, election officials said Saturday. Case was an incumbent for five weeks after easily winning a special election to finish the remainder of the late U.S. Rep. Patsy Mink's term. Case won with 33,002 ballots, or 43 percent, in the vote cast Saturday and tabulated Sunday. He will be sworn in Tuesday. Democrat Matt Matsunaga...

    Filed at 4:12 p.m. ET HONOLULU (AP) -- Democrats expect Rep. Patsy Mink to win re-election in Hawaii next month -- even though she died Sept. 28. Then comes another election for the seat. And then maybe another. The Republican candidate, ex-Marine Bob McDermott, has been feuding with party leaders and has received virtually no support from a state GOP that had discounted his chances of beating Mink. But controversy over the scheduling of as many as three rapid-fire elections for her district is giving Republicans new hope for the longtime Democratic seat. On Nov. 5, voters in the 2nd...
