HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Hawaii republican party officials showed up at a democratic candidate's headquarters to offer a helping hand.

In a tongue in cheek move, GOP leaders dropped off several empty boxes to help Colleen Hanabusa with her move.

Wednesday, the longtime Leeward Oahu resident pledged to move into the first congressional district if she's elected in November to represent it. Republicans say why wait?

"It's kind of disrespectful towards the voters, I mean, to say that, well, if I do win, I guess I'll move into the district, I guess it's important. I think it's disrespectful. Voters should know that," said Dylan Nonaka.

"It's gotta be just a stunt. And it's not a stunt that serves the people well. People want to hear the issues and I think that by doing this they're trying to detract from probably voting records and positions of their party," said Hanabusa.

Hanabusa's residence outside of the district she's running to represent has been one of her opponent Charles Djou's main arguing points against her. law states you only need to be a resident of the state to be elected.
