US Representative for Hawaii's 2nd congressional district, Tulsi Gabbard has withdrawn herself from the Democratic Presidential race on March 19.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.
.@TulsiGabbard has put her life on the line in service of this country and continues to serve with honor today. I’m grateful to have her support and look forward to working with her to restore honor and decency to the White House.— Joe Biden (Text Join to 30330) (@JoeBiden) March 19, 2020
My head is still spinning about Tulsi Gabbard ending her campaign AND giving Joe Biden her endorsement.— BrooklynDad_Defiant! (@mmpadellan) March 19, 2020
I'm not too proud to admit that maybe I was wrong about her.
Biden reportedly said that he was "grateful" for Gabbard's support. Biden tweeted, "@TulsiGabbard has put her life on the line in service of this country and continues to serve with honor today. I’m grateful to have her support and look forward to working with her to restore honor and decency to the White House."
According to the reports, Gabbard also mentioned the Coronavirus pandemic as a reason for leaving the race and said Americans and the global community needed to work together to fight the virus. She reportedly said that the best way she can be of service at this time is to continue to work for the health and wellbeing of the people of Hawaii.
