Campaign 2020

Tulsi Gabbard Running for President

Published

on

Hawaii House Democrat Tulsi Gabbard announced on Friday that she would be running for President in the 2020 election.

Gabbard told CNN’s Van Jones that she would be making a formal announcement within the week in an interview set to be aired tomorrow on the fake news network.

Gabbard has represented Honolulu’s congressional district in the U.S House since 2013. Her Presidential campaign is unlikely to gain traction in an already extremely crowded Democratic Primary, but it’s possible that her candidacy could become a punching bag of sorts for corporate Democrats seeking a target with less devoted followers than Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.

Gabbard has made a name for herself in national politics by challenging uniparty pro-war establishment consensus from a place within the Democratic Party. Gabbard has spoken in detail about keeping the United States out of military adventurism and regime change plots, most prominently in regards to Syria. She visited the country in 2013, having met with the nation’s dictatorial President, Bashar al-Assad. Gabbard also comes to an anti-war perspective from her experiences in the military, having served in the Iraq War with the Hawaii National Guard.

Gabbard’s advocacy against Middle East regime change efforts is comparable in focus to leading anti-war Republican figures like Rand Paul. It’s theoretically possible that Gabbard’s campaign could represent a Democratic equivalent of the campaign Paul’s father, Ron, ran in 2012. She’s attracted opposition from figures associated with the Democratic Party establishment, incensed with her opposition to a corporately controlled Democratic Party.

Gabbard was one of the first federal legislators to endorse Bernie Sanders in the 2016 election. It’s very likely that her Presidential campaign would occupy a similar tier of the Democratic Party with the democratic socialist Senator. Lacking Sanders’ elevated national profile, it’s possible that she could be pushed out of the race early if he were to run and attract many of her potential supporters to a second Presidential campaign.

Gabbard is one of the first individuals belonging to the Hindu religion to become somewhat of a national political figure.
