For John, BLUF: There may be a number of not brain dead candidates in the Democratic Party. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From CNN, today.
Here is the tweet:
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard says she will run for president in 2020. "I have decided to run and will be making a formal announcement within the next week," the Hawaii Democrat and Iraq War veteran told CNN's @VanJones68 https://cnn.it/2D4B6tXThat would be US Rep Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hi). In 2016 she was a "Bernie Bro".
To quote Wikipedia:
Gabbard supports abortion rights, opposed the Trans-Pacific Partnership, has called for a restoration of the Glass–Steagall Act, and changed her stance to support same-sex marriage in 2012. She is critical of aspects of American government policy regarding Iraq, Libya, and Syria, and opposes removing the President of Syria Bashar al-Assad from power.So, in some ways she more aligned with Senator Warren than Senator K Harris, and thus on the Trump edge of her Party. The election of 2020 should prove to be interesting.
She announced her pursuit of the Presidency today, 11 January 2018.
