US Representative for Hawaii's 2nd congressional district, Tulsi Gabbard has withdrawn herself from the Democratic Presidential race on March 19. According to the reports, she had been the last woman in the contest after Elizabeth Warren decided to quit within two days of a poor show on Super Tuesday.

According to the reports, Gabbard won two Democratic debates,  both in American Samoa, and endorsed Joe Biden as she suspended her campaign. The Congresswoman reportedly said on Tuesday that when Biden swept the races in Arizona, Florida and Illinois, it was quite clear that the voters had picked Biden to take on President Donald Trump in the general election.
