The first major candidate for President (outside of President Donald Trump) has decided to run for the highest political office in the country.

Representative Tulsi Gabbard, a Democrat from Hawai’i announced on the Van Jones show on Friday her intentions to run.

“I have decided to run and I will make a formal announcement later this week,” the fourth term representative said on Friday.

Gabbard, 37, sparked interest in many supporters of Bernie Sanders’ 2016 presidential campaign after backing him during that election cycle. Many of her policies have been deemed progressive, supporting abortion rights, the legalization of marijuana, and opposes the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

Gabbard is also a veteran of the U.S. Armed Forces, serving in the U.S. Army during the Iraq War, elevating to the rank of major.

Gabbard joins John Delaney and Richard Ojeda as declared candidates for the Democratic Party. Former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development under President Obama, Julian Castro is scheduled to make an announcement tomorrow. Senator Kamala Harris of California is scheduled to make an announcement by next Saturday.

    I’m very happy to see this. Although I disagree with Tulsi Gabbard on many issues, she is one of the few people that are willing to call out the warmongers these days, and for that, she has my respect.
