Hindu Democrat Tulsi Gabbard to Run for US Presidency in 2020

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

Gabbard's declaration follows a December 12 appearance on MSNBC's "Hardball" in which she said she was "seriously considering" a presidential run.

The US senator Elizabeth Warren, of MA, on 31 December 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.

"I have chose to run and will be making a formal announcement within the next week", Gabbard told CNN's Van Jones during an interview to air Saturday. "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.

She had a run-in with Harris this week, accusing her of religious bigotry for her opposition to a nominee for federal judgeship because he belonged to a Catholic organisation called the Knights of Columbus.

"When we stand together, united by our love for each other and for our country, there is no challenge we can not overcome", Rep. Gabbard tweeted on Friday afternoon.

The Israel-first crew made its opinion known, though no one really asked them. She also was one of the first female combat veterans elected to Congress ― deployed to Iraq from 2004 to 2005, and to Kuwait from 2008 to 2009 as a member of the Hawaii Army National Guard. However, at this point of time, American political pundits do not give her much chance.

Gabbard is not Indian American, once again, but is often thought of one, being a Hindu.

At age 21, Gabbard was elected to serve in the Hawaii state Legislature. 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. She has so much aloha for the people.

According to health officials, a 74-year-old man who was vaccinated died from complications from influenza B on December 31. Lab-confirmed flu cases in the county total 2,083 through January 5, according to the county's weekly influenza report.

Rumors of her run for president have circulated in recent months.

Gabbard is joining what is expected to be a crowded Democratic field.

Adding to the mix, there is speculation that Nikki Haley, who quit as US Permanent Representative to the United Nations at the end of last last may seek the Republican Party nomination in the event that President Donald Trump is not up for re-election next year. The victor of the Democratic primary would be pitted against him.

U.S. Representative Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) waves after making a nomination speech for Senator Bernie Sanders at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, U.S. July 26, 2016.

Gabbard says she will run on a platform that includes criminal justice issues and climate change, but she tells CNN that America's ongoing wars will be her central focus.

Former US vice president Joe Biden has also expressed his interest in the 2020 bid.

According to CNN, Senator Sanders's 2016 deputy campaign manager Rania Batrice will be Ms Gabbard's campaign manager.

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.
