Hawaii Congressional Districts: Gabbard and Hanabusa Triumph

Hawaii Congressional Districts: Gabbard and Hanabusa Triumph
By Sophie Cocke 11/06/2012

Tulsi Gabbard, Hawaii’s “it girl,” is heading to Washington D.C.

The 31-year-old rising star of the Democratic Party beat Republican challenger Kawika Crowley by a landslide Tuesday night, gaining 77 percent of the vote, to Crowley's 19 percent, with all precincts reporting.

She told a crowd of cheering supporters at the Democratic campaign headquarters in the Japanese Cultural Center that she was able to pull off what seemed to be the impossible because of them.

"It was because of all of you. It was because of the hard work of our team and the people that I had the great honor and privilege to meet throughout this year," she said.

Gabbard will join fellow Democrat Colleen Hanabusa in the U.S. House of Representatives this January. Hanabusa topped Republican opponent Charles Djou, 54 percent to 44 percent.
