U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard has been assigned a coveted slot on the House Armed Services Committee.

Hawaii has traditionally had a seat on the committee, but U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa will give up her post when she leaves the House after this term. Hanabusa is challenging U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz in the Democratic primary.

Gabbard, a freshman, snagged the spot over more seasoned Democrats.

From Gabbard:

US Rep. Tulsi Gabbard today asked the head of Homeland Security to help resolve issues preventing Kona International Airport from accepting international flights.

Gabbard told Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson that said she was making the request, which came during a hearing of the House Homeland Security Committee, from both an economic and security perspective.

She said restoring customs operations that were halted in 2012 at the Kona airport would not only provide an economic boost but would also provide a back-up destination if international flights were unable to land at Honolulu International Airport.

Is Tulsi Gabbard Hawaii's Invincible Rep.?

As of last week, a total of 40 U.S. senators and representatives have announced that they will not run for re-election in 2014. That represents about one in every 11 incumbents sent to the nation's capital.

Reasons vary but intractable partisan gridlock is a dominant explanation. It's contributed to Congress' abysmal approval rating of just 13 percent, well below the historical average of 33 percent.

Here at home, though, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard announced her bid for a second term last month. Despite the lousy track record of accomplishment for the 113th Congress, she looks forward to serving in the 114th.
