Rep. Tulsi Gabbard Will Run For President In 2020

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard D-Hawaii greets supporters Tuesday Nov. 6 2018 in Honolulu

"I have made a decision to run and will be making a formal announcement within the next week", Gabbard said.

Gabbard was born in American Samoa to a Catholic father, Hawaii State Senator Mike Gabbard, and her mother, Carol Porter Gabbard, is of Caucasian descent who professes Hinduism.

U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren of MA on December 31 announced she had formed an exploratory committee for a presidential run in what is expected to be a crowded Democratic primary field before the November 2020 presidential election.

Gabbard enters a 2020 Democrat primary field which will likely go into double-digits.

While her support for Sanders' economic message may turn off libertarians for obvious reasons, it's hard to imagine there being anyone in either major party primary who will be more critical of America's wasteful and seemingly endless post-9/11 wars.

Gabbard, 37, said "the issue of war and peace" would be the main focus of her campaign. 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.

She continues to be a member of the Army National Guard with the rank of major and while serving in Congress has been mobilised for emergency duties.

Sarri: Chelsea need two signings in January
Willian was on Thursday linked with Barcelona, but Sarri ruled out the prospect of the Brazilian departing this month. The Italian said he has recommended Chelsea need to recruit two players, but declined to say their positions.

Gabbard was one of the most prominent lawmakers to back Bernie Sanders over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Democratic primary. She stepped down in 2004 to fight in the Iraq War. She could find herself competing against the likes of such heavy hitters as Sen.

Asked previous year whether she would still consider running if Senator Sanders ran, Ms Gabbard said Senator Sanders is a friend and she did not know what his plans were. In January, she met with Assad without informing leaders in her party, and she dismissed his opposition ― including rebels backed by the United States ― as "terrorists".

In response, Gabbard wrote on Twitter that "being Saudi Arabia's bitch is not 'America First'". She says she no longer holds those views on the issue.

She drew controversy when she met with Syrian president Bashar al-Assad in 2017 amidst the brutal civil war there.

"Tulsi Gabbard has an even bigger problem than her lack of experience - it's that she has no base of support", Republican National Committee spokesman Michael Ahrens said. In 2012, she was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives.

Indeed, Gabbard has rankled some in her party for her unorthodox moves.
