The moment I heard about this, I began wondering to myself wh7y she would do such a thing since it is nearly impossible for her to win the Democratic nomination because the DNC won’t let her win. That left me with two possibilities. The first is that she has decided she no longer wants to stay in congress or number two, she wants to run a third party campaign. If it’s the latter, the Democrats are dead in the water before the beach is even opened. She won’t be able to draw Trump voters because she is almost as radical as Bernie and Pocahontas. But, she will draw votes from either one of those, because she isn’t quite as crazy as they are. In close votes, she would be the deciding factor.
Democratic Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard announced Thursday that she will not run for reelection for her seat in Congress in 2020 because she wants to focus on winning the Democratic presidential nomination.
“I’m fully committed to my offer to serve you, the people of Hawaii & America, as your President & Commander-in-Chief. So I will not be seeking reelection to Congress in 2020. I humbly ask for your support for my candidacy for President of the United States,” Gabbard tweeted early Friday with a link to her video announcement.
Gabbard began the video by expressing her gratitude to the people of Hawaii, and continued on to discuss what she plans to do if elected president in 2020.
“As President, I will immediately begin work to end the new Cold War and nuclear arms race, end our interventionist foreign policy of carrying out regime change wars, and redirect our precious resources towards serving the needs of the people here at home,” Gabbard said in her announcement, adding that she would lead the country with “aloha,” a Hawaiian term that embodies love, peace, and compassion.
