A Democratic member of the House of Representatives from Hawaii said on MSNBC’s “Hard Ball” with Chris Matthews Wednesday that she is thinking of joining what looks to be a crowded field of potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidates.
“I’m seriously considering [it],” Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) said when asked is she was planning a White House bid. “I’m thinking through it very carefully.”
Gabbard added that she was “concerned about the direction of our country.”
The Hawaiian House Rep served in a field medical unit in a combat zone in Iraq as a member of the Hawaii Army National Guard from 2004 to 2005.
Gabbard joins a long list of Democrats who are rumored to be 2020 candidates. Wednesday morning, former Obama administration Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julian Castro formed an exploratory committee, the first formal step towards running for president. Castro was also the mayor of San Antonio from 2009 to 2014.
Others rumored to be in the mix are former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), and failed U.S. Senate candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, a State Representative from Texas. Those three have topped very early polls among Democratic voters. O’Rourke met with former president Barack H. Obama in November.
Other rumored candidates include Sens. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and the ever-pervasive Hillary R. Clinton.

Arizona Legislature to Hold Public Hearings on Matters of Election Integrity, “Stop the Steal” Rally Being Held Saturday
The hearing will be held on November 30th.
The Arizona legislature will hold a hearing on election improprieties and the integrity of the state’s 2020 election on Monday. Members of the Arizona Senate and House of Representatives will participate on the public event.
Representative Mark Finchem of Legislative District will chair the hearing.
“Since shortly before the 2020 election a number of my colleagues and I have been examining potential fraud pathways and illegal actions through which our 2020 election could become tainted. My worst fears have come to light in the process, and so far the evidence has been blocked from an official public forum,” Rep. Finchem said. “A few weeks ago I requested approval for the House Federal Relations Committee to hold a hearing on the integrity of the Arizona 2020 election. That hearing has not yet been approved by House leadership, and time is of the essence to show proof that our election has been compromised.”
Finchem cited sworn affidavits attesting to irregularities in Arizona’s election, voter fraud, and poor management on the part of (now outgoing) Maricopa County Recorder Adrian Fontes.
“After a review of the statistical anomalies, and there are to numbers to count, affidavits of improper actions, and community outrage that has grown out of what appears to voters to be an attempt to throw the election through a number of fraudulent efforts, we decided as a Members of the Legislature, and not as members of any specific committee, that we should move forward with a public hearing.”
Trump campaign attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis are expected to attend the hearing. Joe Biden appears to have won the state of Arizona by just over 10,000 votes.

State legislators have an imperative to remedy and rectify any election issues stemming from governmental improprieties, and can potentially appoint electors to the electoral college of their own volition.
A massive “Stop the Steal” rally is being held at the Arizona Legislature on Saturday at noon, with speakers including conservative commentator Nicholas J. Fuentes and Infowars host Alex Jones.
