The Hawaii congresswoman is coming off the back of a mild political storm after being linked to Russia as a plant but whos coming out to support her?
Tulsi Gabbard arrived late for her own campaign event at the Salt Hill Pub in Lebanon, New Hampshire. It meant she had to weave her way through the crowd of 200 people her biggest audience yet in the state.
It gave Gabbard an opportunity to see the eclectic mix of supporters her curious 2020 presidential campaign has managed to assemble: a mostly male grab-bag of veterans, anti-war activists, ex-Bernie Sanders supporters, ex-Jill Stein votersand at least one Donald Trump fan.
There was a bearded man wearing a multicolored wool hat, who was carrying a big stick that he kept banging on the floor. An ex-navy seaman was there, bantering with Gabbard about her service in the army.
A longtime Sanders-supporting carpenter pushed his way to the front as Gabbard passed, and declared that on shaking the candidates hand he had sensed a real force of being. At the back of the crowd an old man waved a sign that said: Free Julian Assange. Stop the torture.
It was an interesting time to attend a Gabbard event. The 39-year-old congresswoman, currently in her third term in the House, is coming off the back of a mild political storm after she was linked with being a Russian plant in the Democratic race, and many of her supporters were convinced of a Democratic-party-cum-mainstream-media conspiracy to depress her chances.
Aloha! Gabbard began she is from Hawaii, something she mentions a lot while her staff handed out campaign leaflets which had a picture of Gabbard and the words A soldiers heart. (Gabbard is a major in the national guard and has served tours of Kuwait and Iraq. She mentions that a lot, too.)
Wearing her customary white blazer and standing on a wooden bench, Gabbard spoke slowly and deliberately. Gabbard believes that the US has spent too much money meddling in other countrys affairs, and is a fervent anti-interventionist. Her belief in scaling back the military shapes her politics and is the basis of her campaign pitch.
Her pitch was well-received.
