Tulsi Gabbard is the first Hindu lawmaker in the United States Congress to contest for the Presidency, said that she will not contest as an independent candidate if fails to win the Democratic Presidential Nomination, reported source.
38-year-old Tulsi Gabbard is an Iraq War Veteran, who has served as the United Representative for Hawaii’s second congressional district since 2013, has said that she will aim at moving her campaign and continue to ask for the help of people, reported source.
Ms. Gabbard told sources that “I will not,” adding that “No, I have ruled that out.”
However, she has failed to qualify for the next Democratic debate in September after making it to the first two debates. She has reached the fundraising entrance, but didn’t meet the Democratic National Committee’s polling minimum to qualify, added the report.
On Thursday, Ms. Gabbard has claimed that there is “no explanation or transparency around why certain polls are qualifying while other very credible recognized polls are somehow not qualifying.”
She continued, “Frankly, the DNC has not provided any transparency to voters about how they’re making these decisions.”
Earlier this month, she had taken a two-long-week break to report for lively duty with the Hawaiian Army National Guard in Indonesia for guidance exercises that include counterterrorism and disaster reply.
Ms. Gabbard has served in the Hawaii Army National Guard in Iraq from 2004 to 2005. She has served a second deployment in Kuwait in 2008 and 2009, working with the Kuwaiti Army.
