Hawaii Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard announces 2020 presidential run

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard D-Hawaii greets supporters Tuesday Nov. 6 2018 in Honolulu

Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (D- HI) said today she has chose to run for President in 2020.

Gabbard, a delegate for Hawaii in the House of Representatives, told CNN in an interview set to air on Saturday night that she will formally announce her candidacy within the week.

"I have chose to run and will be making a formal announcement within the next week", CNN quoted Gabbard as saying in a pretaped interview for "The Van Jones Show". In 2017 she received criticism for meeting with Bashar al-Assad.

She said she does not regret the trip and considers it important to meet with adversaries if "you are serious about pursuing peace".

He added that NY has a public health insurance option, MetroPlus , that the city aims to improve, expand and support through NYC Care.

In the race to pick a candidate to run against Trump, Democrats will grapple with the tension between the party's establishment and liberal wings that flared during the 2016 state-by-state nominating contests between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Senator Bernie Sanders, an independent who ran under the Democratic banner.

"I'm thinking through how I can best be of service and I'll make my decision based on that", she said. She made news again when she left the seat to serve in Iraq with the Army National Guard. California Sen. Kamala Harris, New Jersey Sen. Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren announced the formation of a presidential exploratory committee at the end of previous year. She opposed the Obama administration's interventions in Syria as being "against America's national security, global credibility, economic interest, and moral center" and has called for putting an end to the Afghanistan war "as soon as possible".

That same year, as a vice chair of the Democratic National Committee, Gabbard criticized the party's handling of the presidential primary.

Gabbard certainly poses a thorny problem for the neocon-neoliberal axis, as she checks all the identity politics boxes - the first Hindu member of Congress, a woman, a veteran - and she has undeniable populist appeal, given her anti-establishment record.

Sex toy maker blasts CES over award flip-flop
But the award was rescinded weeks later by the CES organizer, the Consumer Technology Association, TechCrunch reported . But what makes the DiCarlo drama even more weird is that CES has also shown female-centric sex tech in the past.

Gabbard would eventually support the Iran nuclear deal, while becoming one of few Democrats to back legislation making it harder for Syrian refugees to enter the United States.

A staunch anti-war voice in Congress, Gabbard has called for the U.S.to halt further involvement in Saudi Arabia's military intervention in Yemen, describing the civil war as a humanitarian crisis. A clip of her announcement is already posted on the network's website, in which she says a formal announcement will be coming within the next week.

According to CNN, Senator Sanders's 2016 deputy campaign manager Rania Batrice will be Ms Gabbard's campaign manager.
