APNewsBreak: Ex-Rep. Ed Case enters Hawaii race for US House

HONOLULU — Former U.S. Rep. Ed Case is setting his sights again on the House of Representatives.

The state Office of Elections website has the Democrat listed in the contest for Hawaii’s 1st Congressional District, which encompasses the densely-populated urban areas of Honolulu. Six other Democrats are in the race including former Attorney General Doug Chin.

Case did not immediately respond to after-hours requests for comment Monday.

Fellow Democrat Colleen Hanabusa, who currently represents the district, is running for governor.

Case represented Hawaii’s 2nd Congressional District from 2002 to 2007. In 2006, he unsuccessfully challenged then-Sen. Daniel Akaka in the Democratic primary.

Hawaii’s primary election will be held Aug. 11.
