Congressman Pete Seesions, the head of the NRCC, said, "This is not only a victory for Djou, it's a victory for you and the American people," in a news release and an e-mail to coalition partners. Djou winning an open seat in Hawaii in a special election on Saturday, May 22, 2010 was not great victory for either the Republican Party or for "the people." First, it was a fluke caused when two strong Democrats stayed in the special election splitting the liberal vote. Djou probably cannot hold on to the seat in the November election running against one Democrat. But it gets worse. Djou was endorsed by anti-family homosexual groups such as the Log Cabin Republicans. In a Democrat state which elected a Republican governor to stop same sex marriage Djou is out of step with reality. "Great victory?" I don't think so.

This coming Tuesday, May 18th, there are primary elections in Arkansas, Kentucky, Oregon and Pennsylvania. So far in May a Republican Senator and a Democrat congressman have been booted out by their own party's voters. This could happen again in Pennsylvania if the Democrats reject turn-coat former Republican Senator Arlene Specter who is now trailing a liberal congressman. The same day there is a special election for the seat of deceased congressman John Murtha. Despite the fact that the district is 2 to 1 Democrat the polls show that Republican businessman Tim Burns could win the seat. See latest polls
