Gabbard cruises to victory over little-known GOP opponent

By Star-Advertiser & Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 12:56 a.m. HST, Nov 7, 2012

Former City Councilwoman Tulsi Gabbard won an easy victory over little-known Republican Kawika Crowley tonight to take the U.S. House seat for Congressional District 2.

The victory was widely expected after Gabbard’s surprise Democratic primary victory over former Honolulu Mayor Mufi Hannemann in August. She went on to speak at the Democratic National Convention, appearing with U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi. 

After three printouts, Gabbard had an insurmountable lead of nearly 60 percentage points over Crowley.

Crowley, a homeless man who lives in a van on Oahu’s Windward side, did not have the backing of Hawaii GOP party and did little campaigning or fundraising.

Gabbard resigned from her council seat to allow the city to hold a special election to replace her.
