The incumbent is Democrat Tulsi Gabbard, who was re-elected with 77.4% of the vote in 2018,[1] and announced that she would run for president in 2020. Hawaii law permits candidates to run for both Congress and the presidency.[3] On October 25, 2019, Gabbard announced that she would not seek re-election as she is focusing on her presidential campaign.[4]
