The 2012 United States House of Representatives elections in Hawaii were held on Tuesday, November 6, 2012 to elect the two U.S. Representatives from the state, one from each of the state's two congressional districts. The elections coincided with the elections of other federal and state offices, including a quadrennial presidential election and an election for the United States Senate. Primary elections were held on August 11, 2012.[1]

District 2

Democrat Mazie Hirono, who has represented the 2nd district since 2007, announced in May 2011 that she would run for the U.S. Senate rather than for re-election to the House.[8]

Democratic primary

Gabbard received endorsements from the Sierra Club,[9] Women Under Forty PAC,[10] Emily's List,[11] and MauiTime.[12] Hannemann and Gabbard also differed on the issue of same-sex marriage. Gabbard was opposed to the Defense of Marriage Act and to a proposed Hawaii state constitutional amendment that would define marriage as between a woman and a man, while Hannemann supported DOMA.[13] Gabbard had previously opposed same-sex marriage,[14] but during the primary campaign, promised to work to repeal DOMA and co-sponsor the Respect for Marriage act.[15] Voters initially doubted the sincerity of her new views on the issue.[16]

Gabbard filed a 270-page complaint against Hannemann's spending,[17] saying that his campaign broke campaign finance laws by failing to report 2012 travel and polling expenses and improperly dealt with Hanneman's salary from a tourism association.[18]

Candidates Marx, Gabbard, and Kia'aina debated on June 5,[19] and Marx, Gabbard, Kia'aina and Hannemann debated in early July.[13]

Gabbard's ratings in the polls increased steadily and Hannemann's dropped throughout the primary campaign,;[20] as of August 6, she was leading against Hanneman 49% to 29%. On August 11, she defeated Hanneman by twenty points, winning the primary. The Honolulu Star-Advertiser described her win as the "improbable rise from a distant underdog to victory".[21] Gabbard credited grassroots support as the reason for her come-from-behind win in the primary.[22] She decided to resign her seat on the City Council, stating that she wanted to prevent the cost of a separate special election,[23] and resigned on August 16.[24]
