Right and so in just under a month Republicans could be celebrated the pick up about how C.
That is better in the hands of Democrats for nearly two decades what's even more interest being is that this -- happens to be.
In president Obama's hometown district now there you see the very house that the anointed one spent part of his childhood.
-- years the area has been a democratic stronghold but that could soon change a special election will take place on May 22.
To fill the seat previously held by Democrat Neil Abercrombie was now running for governor.
So could president Obama's old stomping ground soon be sending a Republican to Washington DC and joining me now from Honolulu is the man himself GOP.
Congressional candidate city councilman and member of the US army reserve Charles as you.
Is with us -- -- about to the program -- they -- us.
The last time thank you very much you have no -- -- -- even be there all right well apparently.
The Democrats think a lot of the year candidacy but -- national Democrats who have launched massive attacks against you tell us what they -- saying about.
You know I decided I guess it's a good sign here that the Democrats are spending hundreds of thousands of dollars.
The tried to -- down my candidacy the sure sign.
That there are very much afraid over the voters of Hawaii may do.
Somebody attacks against me have been that I supposedly favors shipping jobs overseas.
And the reason for that is is because I signed a pledge not to raise taxes it's utterly preposterous claim.
But I think it's clear sign of how desperate the Democrats are.
And how serious the stakes -- this particular congressional race.
We really can win and if we win here in Hawaii it makes a profound statement for the Republicans to take back control of US House of Representatives this coming November.
-- but it seems the biggest issue with the the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in their attacks against you is that you oppose the stimulus plan.
Now you've also gone on record saying you've never voted for a tax increase you'd never supported wasteful government spending.
We have chronicled in two very distinct specials on this program the government waste as it relates that to the stimulus.
However I would think that this is a favorable issue for you but you know I think it's the only it's the only thing -- that race but.
Sign it clearly shows the.
I think the majority in congress and and how they're taking our nation in the wrong direction and my candidacy is built on a very very simple premise.
That I understand every single dollar that the government stands.
Comes from a family like yours and if I'm fortunate enough to get elected the congress that's something I'll never forget.
And that simple statement unfortunately is -- frightening and scaring the national operatives over in Washington DC.
And that's all the much more reason why we really need to change the direction of congress because -- mentality of spend spend spend and if that doesn't work spend some more really is doing a great disservice to the American people and a very eagerly look forward to being this matches.
For the people of Hawaii and its upcoming special like -- -- just.
I like everything that you sank but as I if you had this congress would spend money as it -- -- their own money.
I think they will probably be far more fiscally responsible.
The question is -- at that -- glad.
Then these essays on you're you're absolutely right and that's why we we so that's really neat things like.
The earmark reform we need to put a moratorium on all this pork the congress is spending we need a balanced budget amendment.
No we don't need is another stimulus package or a one trillion dollar takeover -- our industry but this is a seat that has been held by a Democrat for the better part of two decades.
Do you think the environment now is -- similar to Massachusetts.
Or New Jersey.
He think this could be the year and and one of the poll numbers show.
Absolutely we are extremely excited about this campaign.
You know that the poll numbers and truly the only -- -- -- counts is the one taken by the voters on Election Day but some of the recent polls that come out.
Show that my campaign is either tied for the lead or we're enjoying -- very razor thin lead ahead of the democratic candidates.
But the important thing here is that we have a great message.
-- that it's a message.
That it is more important to elect a congressman what's the hold on your taxes and it's a keyboard your money that like the congress that want to spend all of your mind that's where attendance is all of I think if you're a liberal you kind of wake up in the morning is saying you know what I'm not -- enough -- taxes -- need to pay more so.
I like the method of personal -- and don't let nobody stop -- -- pay more taxes.
Many maybe they -- I don't have any channels left they've taken every -- every malveaux is another.
Anyway that's a good luck -- all of -- you thanks for they -- us.
-- I really appreciated -- invite everybody.
This that I let's say did you dot com -- -- DJ OU dot com yeah that's an.
Sonics I would do this interview in Honolulu and Waikiki Beach all right I think you know what that's a really important thing we'll -- to get right -- had the -- possible.
