HONOLULU (AP) - Former U.S. Rep. Charles Djou is the Republican party’s nominee for the U.S. House seat representing urban Honolulu.

Djou defeated Allan Levene in Saturday’s primary.

Seven Democrats are running in the primary for the U.S. House seat being vacated by U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa.

Djou represented Hawaii’s 1st Congressional District for seven months from 2010 to 2011 when he won a three-way special election. He lost the seat to Hanabusa in the 2010 elected and was defeated by her again in 2012.

Djou is a major in the U.S. Army Reserve. After serving in Congress, he was deployed to Afghanistan.
