Rep. Tulsi Gabbard Will Run For President In 2020

Tulsi Gabbard said in an interview on Friday that she has chose to run for the White House and will be make a formal announcement over the next week. "I look forward to being able to get into this and to talk about it in depth when we make our announcement". Gabbard said she was concerned about a number of challenges facing the American people that she wants to help solve, including health care access, criminal justice reform and climate change.

Gabbard, 37, was elected in 2012. She made news again when she left the seat to serve in Iraq with the Army National Guard. She has visited early primary and caucus states New Hampshire and Iowa in recent months and has written a memoir that's due to be published in May.

Rania Batrice, who was a deputy campaign manager for Sanders in 2016, said she will be Gabbard's campaign manager.

Gabbard had endorsed Sanders in 2016 after falling out with the Democratic National Committee over its handling of the primary and her opposition to Clinton's foreign policy views. Her endorsement came in dramatic fashion, with her resigning as a vice chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee to express her support. Gabbard supported legislation that made it more hard for Syrian refugees to enter the U.S.

Gabbard drew heavy criticism when she met secretly with Assad in Damascus in 2017 during a fact-finding mission that also took her to the decimated city of Aleppo.

In November, the Hawaii Democrat garnered headlines for criticizing President Donald Trump's decision not to further punish Saudi Arabia over the murder of Washington Post contributor Jamal Khashoggi. She was deployed a second time, to Kuwait, in 2008.

"There is one main issue that is central to the rest, and that is the issue of war and peace", Gabbard said, according to CNN. "Liberals think she's too conservative, conservatives think she's too liberal, and just about everyone thinks her coziness with Bashar al-Assad is disturbing", said Ahrens.

In recent weeks, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) was the first serious Democrat presidential contender to launch a White House exploratory committee. Elizabeth Warren of MA and other candidates. So if you were thinking Gabbard was looking for a VP slot on the Kamala Harris ticket, that's probably out now. Former Vice President Joe Biden and former Rep. Robert Francis "Beto" O'Rourke (D-TX) are also reportedly considering running for president.
