Ex-Member Makes Case for Possible Comeback

Posted May 3, 2007 at 9:29am

Former Rep. Ed Case (D), who retired from Congress after unsuccessfully challenging Sen. Daniel Akaka (D) in September’s Democratic primary, is not through with politics yet.

The man whom state party officials considered disrespectful for vying against the 82-year-old Akaka e-mailed supporters a letter earlier this week titled “checking in.”

“I do hope to contribute in further elective office, although it’s still a little early for exactly what and when,” Case wrote. “In the coming months I’ll be offering further thoughts here, including how we might provide voters a much broader choice of candidates in ’08, and asking for your further support.”

Case represented the 2nd district after winning a special election to replace Rep. Patsy Mink (D), who died in 2002.
