A Democrat from Hawaii and an Hindu Congresswoman, Tulsi Gabbard is now all set to run for President of United States in the year 2020.
Gabbard listed criminal justice reform, climate change and health care as issues that she was interested in solving.
Gabbard, 37, arrived in Congress six years ago after an underdog campaign for Hawaii’s mostly rural 2nd District.
She made news again when she left the seat to serve in Iraq with the Army National Guard.
Gabbard quickly established herself as a voice for her party’s left on domestic issues and a critic of foreign military intervention.
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.
Gabbard has recanted those views, telling voters at an early December meeting in New Hampshire that she had changed after her service in Iraq.
