Former U.S. Congressman Charles Djou formally announced his candidacy Thursday morning on KSSK's Perry & Price show. He's running in the upcoming election for the state's 1st Congressional District. Djou will run for the seat being vacated by Congresswoman Colleen Hanabusa, who is challenging fellow democrat Brian Schatz for a seat in the U. S. Senate. Djou won a special election for a seat in the 1st Congressional District in May of 2010, but was defeated by Hanabusa in the general election for the same seat nearly six months later.
