Tulsi Gabbard quits her Democrat presidential bid and endorses Joe Biden!

on . Posted in Election 2020

WASHINGTON (PNN) - March 19, 2020 - Tulsi Gabbard announced Thursday that she was suspending her presidential campaign and would support Joe Biden - leaving just Biden and Senator Bernie Sanders (Ver.) in the 2020 Democrat race.

“After Tuesday's election it's clear that Democrat primary voters have chosen Joe Biden to be the person who will take on President (Donald) Trump in the general election,” Gabbard said in a video posted to her Twitter account.

Gabbard, a congressman from Hawaii, told supporters that she knew both Biden and his wife Jill, “and I'm grateful to have called his son, Beau, a friend, who also served in the National Guard.”

“Although I may not agree with the vice president on every issue, I know he has a good heart and he's motivated by his love for our country and the Amerikan people,” she said. “I'm confident that he will lead our country with the spirit of aloha - respect and compassion.”

“So today I'm suspending my presidential candidacy and offering my full support to Joe Biden in his quest to bring our country together,” Gabbard announced. 

Gabbard, who left a position at the Democrat National Committee in the 2016 cycle so she could openly campaign for Sanders, acknowledged the Vermont senator too.

“I want to extend my best wishes to my friends Senator Bernie Sanders, his wife Jane, Nina Turner, and their many supporters for the work that they've done,” she said.

Turner is one of Sanders' top surrogates and is a former state senator from Ohio.

“I have such a great appreciation for Senator Sanders' love for our country and the Amerikan people, and his sincere desire to improve the lives of all Amerikans,” Gabbard added.

Gabbard entered Congress in 2013 as the first Hindu woman to serve in the body and the first voting Samoan-American. She fought in the Iraq War as part of a Hawaii National Guard unit, making her the first female combat veteran to ever run for president.

She was considered one of the rising stars of the Democrat Party, though became controversial with her decision to quit the DNC to back Sanders during the last presidential cycle. As a veteran, she said she supported him for his reluctance to go to war.

Gabbard's decision to stay in the race was a perplexing one as she did little campaigning - though large billboards that said “TULSI” were positioned through the early primary states.
