The 1st district is located entirely on the island of Oahu, encompassing the urban areas of the City and County of Honolulu, a consolidated city-county that includes Oahu's central plains and southern shores, including the towns of Aiea, Mililani, Pearl City, Waipahu and Waimalu. It is the only majority-Asian district in the United States. The incumbent is Democrat Colleen Hanabusa, who has represented the district since 2011. She was re-elected with 54% of the vote in 2012 and the district has a PVI of D+18.
On December 17, 2012, after the death of U.S. Senator Daniel Inouye, it was announced that Inouye had sent a letter shortly before his death to the Governor of Hawaii, Neil Abercrombie, stating his desire that Hanabusa be appointed to his seat. Abercrombie decided against appointing Hanabusa and chose Lieutenant Governor of Hawaii Brian Schatz instead. Hanabusa declined to run for re-election, instead challenging Schatz in the Democratic primary for the Senate special election. She was defeated by Schatz, 48.5% to 47.8%.
