FILE - In this Nov. 13, 2012 file photo, then-Rep.-elect Ami Bera, D-Calif., speaks to reporters after he registered for orientation at a hotel as newly-elected members of Congress arrived on Capitol Hill in Washington. Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, of Hawaii, is the first Hindu elected to Congress. Bera, also a Democrat, is the third Indian-American to serve in the House. Gabbard, however, isn't from India, where Hinduism originated and the background shared by the vast majority of its adherents have ethnic ties. (AP Photo/Charles Dharapak, File)
