Case, a Blue Dog Coalition/Blue Dog Democrat, first came to prominence in Hawaii as majority leader of the Hawaii State Legislature and for his campaign for Governor of Hawaii in 2002. First elected to the House of Representatives in 2002 in a special election to fill the seat of Patsy Mink, who died of pneumonia, Case represented Hawaii's 2nd congressional district until 2006, when he chose not to run for another term in the House of Representatives so he could challenge Senator Daniel Akaka in the Democratic primary for Akaka's United States Senate/U.S. Senate seat. Case lost the primary election 53%–46%.

I believe that the fact and the reality of homosexuality and heterosexuality and of opposite and same-gender unions should be taught in our public schools without a value judgement system also being offered.

I support allowing homosexuals to serve openly in our military and eliminating the 'don't ask, don't tell' policy.

All of our Hawaii joins the Mink ohana (family) in mourning the passing of John Mink.

It's fun, I suppose. It may be that the story of Hanukkah has appeal, that's it's about not assimilating, about fighting oppression. But it's probably because they grew up with it.

That's why my wife doesn't play with me. I count her hand before she does.

My own personal, moral, spiritual, religious, etc. beliefs don't oppose same-gender marriage.

Just as is happening in many other places in the world now, as there has been a rash of decisions in other countries, either legislative or judicial, validating same-gender marriages, I think that the time will come in Hawaii.
