Espero to seek U.S. House seat vacated by Hanabusa

July 23, 2013
The Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) - State Sen. Will Espero says he plans to run for a U.S. House seat being vacated by U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa.

The Democrat made his announcement Sunday before a crowd of supporters.

Espero, who represents Ewa and Ewa Beach on Oahu, is the second candidate to fully enter the race. Stanley Chang, a Honolulu city council member. Chang had $162,000 in campaign funds as of June 30.

Another Democratic council member, Ikaika Anderson, has formed a campaign committee but has not said whether he's fully committed to the race.

Hanabusa is leaving her seat to challenge U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz in a primary. Schatz was appointed to the Senate seat in December after longtime U.S. Sen. Daniel K. Inouye died.
