So it's all or nothing for her apparently.

Got to admire the risk taking I suppose.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard says she will focus on her White House bid and not run for reelection to her congressional seat. The congresswoman from Hawaii made the announcement early Friday.

While lagging behind in a crowded Democratic presidential field, Gabbard has gotten renewed attention lately after a heated argument with former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

The Hawaii congresswoman fought back after Clinton said in a recent interview that she believes Republicans have "got their eye on somebody who's currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate." Clinton, the former senator, U.S. secretary of state and 2016 Democratic presidential candidate, did not name Gabbard directly.

The squabble seemed to give Gabbard renewed energy on the campaign trail.

Gabbard noted in her early morning announcement that the threats of war, international tensions and the threats of a new cold war convinced her she should focus on the presidential race

She has some renewed life after the attention she's had lately but she is still extremely far behind and has little to no ground network setup in the early voting states. I believe she was waiting to see if she even had a shot so apparently she's decided that she does.

With all the work she needs to do at this point she doesn't have time to run for congress. The first primary vote is in early February meaning she has about three months to get things set up.
 
It's a secret
She is still at the bottom of the pack.

I imagine she will be announcing the end of her campaign soon enough.

I hope she DOES run as a third party. I am a Trump voter , but if he DID happen to lose ,Gabbard is the only one I would care to have lead us.

Gabbard at least seems like a human being even if she is left.

Only sane one out of that entire group but she is so far behind she has no chance.

Well I wouldn't count anyone out yet.

Remember that in politics a candidate is only one scream away from being rejected by the voters.

She isn't crazy enough to appeal to the base.
Seems like. Funny. Bill Clinton was a lot of things. But at least he played both sides. The Dems have gone cpmpletely commie NUTS in the last few years. Hope it is just a phase.Can you imagine AOC running in about 10 years?
