Djou, Hanabusa raise similar amounts in September

HONOLULU (AP) - The two major candidates for Hawaii's 1st Congressional District have raised similar amounts of political contributions in September.

Reports filed with the Federal Election Commission show that Republican incumbent Rep. Charles Djou collected about $352,000 between Aug. 30 and Sept. 30. He was left with about $395,000 in his treasury.

His Democratic foe, state Senate President Colleen Hanabusa, garnered nearly $336,300 and had about $547,500 in her war chest.

Since January 2009, each has raised a bit more than $2 million.

The next filing deadline is October 21.
