Tulsi Gabbard Biography

[Editor's Note: On Thursday, Mar. 19, 2020, Tulsi Gabbard suspended her campaign for president. In a video posted to her Twitter account on Mar. 19, 2020, Gabbard stated, "Throughout my life, and throughout this campaign, my motivation has been to serve God, our country, and the American people as best I can. I feel the best way I can be of service at this time is to continue to work for the health and well-being of the people of Hawai’i and our country in Congress, and to stand ready to serve in uniform should the Hawai’i National Guard be activated. After Tuesday’s [Mar. 17, 2020] election it is clear that Democratic Primary voters have chose Vice President Joe Biden to be the person who will take on President Trump in the General Election... So, today I’m suspending my presidential campaign, and offering my full support to Vice President Joe Biden in his quest to bring our country together.”]
