Hawaii has two congressional districts, the 1st and the 2nd. The 2nd district includes Kauai, Maui, the Hawaii Island, Lanai, Molokai, Kahoolawe, the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands and the north and west regions of Oahu. The district contains 679,805 people.
Tulsi Gabbard is the district's representative, having won the seat in the Nov. 6, 2012 election after Rep. Mazie Hirono resigned to run for the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Daniel Akaka.
After upsetting veteran politician and former Honolulu mayor Mufi Hannemann in the primary, Gabbard was tagged by national Democrats as a rising star.
