2010 Hawaii's 1st congressional district special election

The 2010 special election for the 1st congressional district of Hawaii was a special election to the United States House of Representatives that took place to fill the vacancy caused by Representative Neil Abercrombie's resignation on February 28, 2010 to focus on his campaign for Governor of Hawaii in the 2010 gubernatorial election. Abercrombie planned to not run for re-election in 2010, many of the candidates that were running for his open seat transferred to the special election; the election was held on May 22, 2010 and Republican Charles Djou won, defeating five Democrats, four fellow Republicans, four Independent candidates. The main reason for his win was because there were two Democratic candidates instead of one, which split the votes, allowing Djou to win, as Hawaii is an overwhelmingly Democratic state; as of 2020, this is the last time. Djou became the first Republican elected to Congress from Hawaii since Pat Saiki in 1988; the election was held without a primary, meaning all candidates from all parties ran against one another and the person with the most votes won.

With three top-tier candidates running, two Democrats and one Republican, it was considered that the two Democrats would split the vote leading to a Republican victory. The election was conducted as a Vote-By-Mail election. All registered voters as of the voter registration deadline were automatically mailed a packet containing the Vote-By-Mail ballot and return envelopes. No polling places were open on May 22, 2010. Ballots were mailed 20 days prior to the election. Voted ballots had to be received by the State of Hawaii Office of Elections no than 6:00 p.m. May 22, 2010 in the return envelopes provided. Any voter requiring the use of an accessible voting machine could do so at the Office of the City Clerk, Honolulu Hale, 530 S. King St. from Monday, May 10, 2010 to Thursday, May 20, 2010, excluding Sundays and holidays between the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Walk-in voting was open on Saturdays during this period.

Moseley Kalaeloa Strode Steve Tataii Democratic leaders conceded that the winner-take-all primary favored the one lone Republican in the race.

The Republican National Committee indicated it may directly support Djou with the hope of winning a congressional seat in a Democratic state. S. Senate in stating: "I think for us to win that seat will send a signal that what happened in Massachusetts is not an isolated event."Both Case and Hanabusa represented different wings of the party, Case being more of a blue-dog moderate Democrat, while Hanabusa is preferred by the liberal wing. Hanabusa secured the endorsement of EMILY's List, the local party establishment, local labor unions. Case was at odds with the party establishment over his primary challenge to U. S. Senator Daniel Akaka in 2006 when he was still Representative of the 2nd district, although Case claimed that any bad blood with the Democratic electorate over the primary challenge was gone, according to his internal polling. Case criticized Hanabusa for keeping her post as president of the State Senate while attempting to campaign, saying: "It is inconsistent for her to want to run the Senate in a time of crisis for our state and want to run a full-fledged congressional campaign."

The national Democratic Party establishment and the Obama administration signaled Case was their pick, believing him more electable than Hanabusa. Case received support from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee while Hanabusa said she hadn't spoken to them since the previous year. Both Case and Hanabusa proposed; the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee dispatched an aide to the state in the hopes of at least ensuring no other Democrats enter the race. It was unlikely; the DCCC chairman Congressman Chris Van Hollen said he was counting on Abercrombie to help keep the seat Democratic. On May 10, 2010, the DCCC said it would not spend any further resources on the race, preferring to save those resources for the November election.

Princess Maria Antonia of Parma

Maria Antonia of Parma was a Princess of Parma, daughter of Duke Ferdinand I of Parma and his wife, Archduchess Maria Amalia of Austria. Maria Antonia grew up with her brother and sisters in the ducal court of Parma, where she was affectionately known as Tognina. Contrary to what has been stated, she was not named after her aunt, Queen Marie Antoinette of France, not her godmother. Maria Antonia's godparents were her uncle, Emperor Joseph II, her father's aunt, Maria Antonia of Spain, Queen of Sardinia, after whom the princess was named, she was a gifted painter and received her training from Giuseppe Baldrighi and Domenico Muzzi, both court painters and professors of the Academy of Fine Arts of Parma. In 1796, Parma was occupied by France. While their parents were allowed to formally remain on their throne but were watched by an entourage of French guards, Maria Antonia and her sister Carlotta were awarded their freedom as they were regarded apolitical; the sisters remained by the side of their parents as their support during the French occupation: they were both regarded to have the religiosity of their father and the willpower of their mother.

However, while Carlotta was imposing enough for the French governor Andoche Junot to recommend that she be acknowledged a Princess by France and awarded a pension to be able to live according to her status, Maria Antonia was described as severe and reserved. At the death of their father in October 1802, the sisters and their mother participated in his official state funeral; when their mother was exiled by the French after the funeral, they accompanied her to Prague, where they kept her company until her death. During their stay in Prague and her sister were described as humble and forgotten, passing their time in prayer. A quiet person, Maria Antonia never married and became an Ursuline novice in 1802; the following year, on 22 April 1803, she received the habit of an Ursuline nun and changed her name to Sister Louise Marie. After the death of her mother in 1804, her sister moved to Rome. Maria Antonie remained in Prague until the fall of Napoleon. During the following years she led a modest life in the Ursuline convent in Parma.

After many years of living there, on 9 May 1831, she moved to the Convent of St Agatha in Rome, where she died in 1841. 28 November 1774 – 22 April 1803 Her Royal Highness Princess Maria Antonia of Parma
