Rep. Tulsi Gabbard Will Run For President In 2020

April FrancisJan 13, 2019

"He asked me bluntly whether I'll run for president, and I told him straight: I've made a decision to run and will make a formal announcement next week". Elizabeth Warren of MA has already formed an exploratory committee and is moving quickly with trips across early primary states.

Her office has not yet responded to a request for comment.

The Democratic Party Of Hawai'i Chair Keali'i Lopez has already issued a statement supporting Rep. Gabbard's presidential announcement.

"There is one main issue that is central to the rest, and that is the issue of war and peace", Gabbard said. She is said to have supported in 2014 a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage nationwide, but later reversed her opinion and applauded a Supreme Court decision to legalise gay marriage across the US.

According to Politico contributor Marc Caputo, the Republican National Committee has dubbed Gabbard Assad's "mouthpiece" in Washington in an internal memo.

The Iraq war veteran has become the first-ever Hindu to be running for the presidency in the US.

What Democratic voters are going to want in 2020 is a candidate who used to attack "homosexual extremists", regularly went on Fox to criticize Obama for not taking "radical Islam" seriously, defended Assad, was considered for a job working for Trump, and is also in a cult maybe. By the middle of her second term, she was getting asked if she might one day run for president.

Police said they have identified all the intended recipients and have put procedures in place to recover the outstanding packages. Officers have so far recovered 29 of the packages, with forensic testing now underway to determine the exact substance in them.

She's also been critical of her own party, calling out Hillary Clinton's track record of supporting foreign wars during the 2016 presidential primary.

Born in American Samoa in 1981 to Carol and Mike Gabbard, she is the fourth of five children, all brought up in the Brahma Madhwa Gaudiya Sampradaya that her mother embraced following her introduction to the Krishna movement.

Her father is American Samoan and her mother from Indiana. In 2012, she was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives.

"Tulsi Gabbard has an even bigger problem than her lack of experience ― it's that she has no base of support", Ahrens said. "I look forward to being able to get into this and to talk about it in depth when we make our announcement", which will come within the next week, Gabbard said.

Rania Batrice, who was a deputy campaign manager for Bernie Sanders in 2016 and is now a top aide to Gabbard, will be her campaign manager, CNN reported. She says she no longer holds those views on the issue.

The 2020 presidential primary cycle is scheduled to kick off from the Iowa Caucuses on February 3, 2020, followed by the New Hampshire Primary on February 11, Nevada caucus of February 15 and SC on February 22. Her decision to meet with [Syrian President Bashar] Assad past year in a undisclosed trip to Syria rattled both sides of the political aisle and drew accusations that she was giving legitimacy to a war criminal.
