Kim announces candidacy for Hawaii US House race

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) Hawaii Senate President Donna Mercado Kim says she will run for a U.S. House seat being vacated by U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa.

Kim announced her candidacy on Wednesday for the open seat in Hawaii's 1st Congressional District, which covers urban Honolulu.

Kim says stalemate in Washington is affecting everyone. She says Congress needs leaders who understand local and state government.

Kim has served in the state Senate since 2000, after holding a seat on the Honolulu City Council from 1985 to 2000.

Kim is one of several Democrats who have announced they will run for the seat, including state Rep. Mark Takai, state Sen. Will Espero, Honolulu City Council members Ikaika Anderson and Stanley Chang, and Kathryn Xian.
