Elected in 2012, she is the first Hindu member of Congress and the first Samoan-American voting member of Congress.

Gabbard's domestic policy platform in her campaign for the 2020 Democratic nomination is economically and socially progressive and has been described as "similar to Bernie Sanders ... in many respects". She supports Medicare for All and strengthening the reproductive rights framework of Roe v Wade by codifying it into federal law. She voted and lobbied against LGBT rights in Hawaii prior to her first tour of duty, but since 2011 Gabbard has apologized for her earlier positions and supported LGBT rights.Gabbard opposes military interventionism and has called herself a "hawk" on terrorism. Her decision to meet Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and her skeptical approach to two claims he had used chemical weapons were controversial, particularly among "leading establishment Democrats".On October 25, 2019, Gabbard announced that she will not seek another term in Congress.
