HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - From Sunrise to Congress, that's where former reporter Ramsay Wharton is hoping to go. Wednesday morning, Wharton made her run official by filing papers for the Second Congressional seat.

"I'm runing for Congress because our current Representative has shown little or no leadership on the key issues upon which our voters have made clear they want our Washington Representatives to focus: job creation, restraint in spending and lower taxes," Wharton said in a statement.

She joins two other Republicans, Antonio Gimernat and John Willoughby. They are all challenging Democrat Mazie Hirono, the incumbent.
