Gabbard became a member of the House of Representatives in 2002 and at age 21 she was officially the youngest person elected to office on Hawaii's behalf. During her term, she viciously opposed same-sex marriages in Hawaii. In 2019, Politico reported that Gabbard lamented her past anti-LGBTQIA+ efforts after facing pushback.

However, Gabbard included that she soon saw the hypocrisy in her beliefs. She said, "But I also grew up in a socially conservative household, where I was raised to believe that marriage should only be between a man and a woman. For a period of my life, I didn't see the contradiction in those beliefs." Her father Mike Gabbard also campaign against LGBTQIA+ rights in the past. Gabbard had four terms as a House of Representatives member.

She criticized the Obama administration in 2015 for refusing to label the Islamic states and their beliefs as "Islamic extremism" and "radical Islam."
