Ever since Patsy Mink left office in 1976 and Daniel Inouye seemed to waiver from the principles that enamored me during the Watergate and Iran-Contra hearings, I've become increasingly disappointed with our Senate and Congressional representatives here in Hawaii.
Our reps have been better than most of their mainland counterparts but I haven't had anyone to get excited about for years.

During a Congressional visit to Maui on Monday, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (HI-02) visited with HC&S employees and met with leaders from ILWU Local 142 (Maui/Lana`i/Moloka`i Division) to discuss the transition and support for Maui's displaced sugar workers and others affected by the closure of HC&S.
Sanders, a former chair of the Senate Veterans' Affairs Committee, "has worked hard to bring our veterans the care and benefits they've earned" as evidenced in his successful "bipartisan effort to guarantee our veterans access to healthcare wherever they are in America," says Gabbard.
KISSIMMEE, Fla. --The thousands of people who have streamed to Bernie Sanders's rallies around the country in recent days have been treated to an opening act -- Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii -- who arguably does more to articulate Sanders's views on foreign policy than he does.
Gabbard, 34, who resigned as vice chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee last month to endorse Sanders for president, has been tasked with introducing him at recent events, including one here Thursday that drew more than 5,000 people.
Bernie Sanders supporter, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), who resigned her position as vice-chair of the Democratic National Committee to endorse the Vermont senator, tells CBS News that while people warned her not to defy the Clintons, she doesn't fear potential retaliation. Gabbard also discussed the state of the primary fight and stressed that Sanders still has a path to the Democratic nomination despite trailing Hillary Clinton in delegates. Gabbard joined CBS News' Demarco Morgan to discuss the 2016 Democratic race.

After resigning her spot as vice chair of the Democratic National Committee in order to endorse Senator Bernie Sanders last week, Representative Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) hit the campaign trail in Michigan and Florida this week to explain why she risked her career to publicly support Sanders instead of Secretary Hillary Clinton, the establishment candidate. The war veteran, who was twice deployed to the Middle East, feels strongly that Sanders is the only candidate who has the “military mindset” to be commander in chief. By spending less money on interventionist wars overseas, she believes Sanders will be able to deliver on his campaign promises to young people here at home who are swimming in student debt and struggling to find a job. Gabbard told Glamour her decision to resign from the DNC to endorse Sanders was an easy one: "I could not live with myself a year from now if I had sat by and said and done nothing."
