Hawaii Congressional District Elections
1st Congressional District Rep. Colleen Hanabusa, a former Hawaii state Senate president, won her congressional seat in November 2010. Hanabusa, a Democrat, defeated incumbent Charles Djou, a Republican, 50-44 percent. Hanabusa and Djou faced off again in 2012, and she was easily re-elected, 54 percent to 44 percent. Hanabusa is vacating the seat to run for U.S. Senate in 2014. She faces incumbent U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz in the Aug. 9 primary.
2nd Congressional District Rep. Tulsi Gabbard won in a landslide in the Nov. 6, 2012 general election. After upsetting veteran politician and former Honolulu mayor Mufi Hannemann in the primary, Gabbard was tagged by national Democrats as a rising star.
