Republican Elected in Obama's Old Stomping Grounds

Could this be a sign of things to come in November?

Honolulu City Councillor Charles Djou, a Republican, won the special election in Hawaii's 1st Congressional District defeating two Democratic candidates.

What makes Djou's victory significant is that this is the Congressional District where President Obama was born and raised. It gave Obama 70% of the vote during the 2008 election.

If Obama's old stomping grounds are having doubts about him there perhaps more change will be afoot in the fall.
