Gab­bard says she will run for pres­i­dent

Tri-City Herald - - Depth -

Rep. Tulsi Gab­bard of Hawaii said Fri­day that she would run for pres­i­dent, join­ing what is ex­pected to be a crowded field of Democrats seek­ing to chal­lenge Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump in 2020.

Gab­bard, 37, an­nounced her de­ci­sion to CNN in an in­ter­view with po­lit­i­cal com­men­ta­tor Van Jones that is sched­uled to air Sat­ur­day.

“I have de­cided to run,” Gab­bard said in a short clip posted Fri­day, “and will be mak­ing a for­mal an­nounce­ment within the next week.”

An Army Na­tional Guard vet­eran who de­ployed twice to the Mid­dle East, she was first elected to the House in 2012.
