The 2nd Congressional District of Hawaii will hold an election for the U.S. House of Representatives on November 4, 2014.

Hawaii has a closed primary system, in which the selection of a party's candidates in a primary election is limited to registered members of that party.

Heading into the election the incumbent is Tulsi Gabbard (D), who was first elected in 2012.

Hawaii's 2nd Congressional District includes all of the Hawaiian islands except for southern Oahu.[1]

Issues

Government shutdown
See also: United States budget debate, 2013

Voted "No" On September 30, 2013, the House passed a final stopgap spending bill before the shutdown went into effect. The bill included a one-year delay of the Affordable Care Act's individual mandate and would have also stripped the bill of federal subsidies for congressional members and staff. It passed through the House with a vote of 228-201.[5] At 1 a.m. on October 1, 2013, one hour after the shutdown officially began, the House voted to move forward with going to a conference. In short order, Sen. Harry Reid rejected the call to conference.[6] Tulsi Gabbard voted against the stopgap spending bill that would have delayed the individual mandate.[7]

Voted "Yes" The shutdown finally ended on October 16, 2013, when the House took a vote on HR 2775 after it was approved by the Senate. The bill to reopen the government lifted the $16.7 trillion debt limit and funds the government through January 15, 2014. Federal employees also received retroactive pay for the shutdown period. The only concession made by Senate Democrats was to require income verification for Obamacare subsidies.[8] The House passed the legislation shortly after the Senate, by a vote of 285-144, with all 144 votes against the legislation coming from Republican members. Tulsi Gabbard voted for HR 2775.[9]
