Democrat Colleen Hanabusa defeated Rep. Charles Djou (R-Hawaii). Djou took the seat in a special election after Rep. Neil Abercrombie (D) resigned to run for governor.

The seat leans Democratic but Hanabusa and former Rep. Ed Case (D) split the Dem vote in the special, which helped Djou win. Case decided not to run for the seat again, freeing the field for Hanabusa.
