Hannemann concedes race to Tulsi Gabbard

In stunning upset, Honolulu City Councilwoman Tulsi Gabbard (61,803 votes, 55.14 percent) trounced Mufi Hannemann (38,451 votes, 34.31 percent) in the race to determine the Democratic nominee for Mazie Hirono's vacated seat in the second Congressional district of the U.S. House of Representatives.

Accompanied on stage by Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie, Gabbard told supporters that her race is "about serving, serving the people of Hawaii, serving the people of our country and the world. This night I would like to dedicate to all of our troops who are serving overseas. They are fighting right now so that we can be here and celebrate democracy, celebrate freedom."

Hanneman conceded the race to Gabbard shortly after arriving on a flight from Maui on Saturday, where he had been campaining during the afternoon.
