Chad Blair: Mufi Returns?
It's been rumored for months that Mufi Hannemann is considering a return to politics, either in a run for his old Honolulu City Council seat or the 1st Congressional District seat being vacated by Colleen Hanabusa.
Now the talk is that the former Honolulu mayor may have settled on Congress, a seat that he has sought unsuccessfully three times. The difference this time is that there is a large — and perhaps growing — field in the CD1 hunt.
In that scenario, a candidate with as little as 20 percent of the Democratic primary vote could prevail. That candidate, the thinking goes, could be Mufi.
