Following the second printout, former congressman and Honolulu mayoral candidate Charles Djou spoke with Kristine Uyeno in his first one-one-one interview on primary election night.
“We’re doing very good,” said Djou.
With 103 of 153 precincts reporting, Caldwell has 49,297 votes or 44.96 percent and Djou has 47,494 votes or 43.31 percent.
Djou says despite differences in staffing and funding, his all-volunteer campaign is “toe-to-toe.”
He said: “Our campaign is about bringing people together.”
Djou also continued to speak out against Caldwell’s plan for rail.
“We’re going to move on to the general election and we’re going to get a mayor we trust…every single thing the mayor has said about rail is wrong,” he said. “The mayor is great at talk, the problem is that he has no money and has no plan.”
