Seeking A House Comeback … In a Different House District

What Hawaii Democrat Ed Case is trying to do with his congressional comeback attempt isn’t at all unusual.  

And the twist in his case — running in the Honolulu-based 1st District, which Democratic Rep. Neil Abercrombie is leaving open to run for governor, and not in the 2nd District that Case represented from 2002 through 2006 — isn’t unheard of, either.  

Case certainly isn’t the first ex-member to seek a political comeback in a congressional district different than the one he or she previously represented.
