Tulsi Gabbard (/ˈtʌlsi ˈɡæbərd/, born April 12, 1981) is an American politician and member of the Democratic Party who has been the United
States Representative for Hawaii's 2nd congressional district since 2013. She was also a vice-chair of the Democratic National Committee until
February 28, 2016, when she resigned to endorse Senator Bernie Sanders for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination. Elected in 2012, she is the
first American Samoan and the first Hindu member of the United States Congress. She served in a combat zone in Iraq. Gabbard (then known as
Tulsi Gabbard Tamayo) served in the Hawaii House of Representatives from 2002 to 2004, becoming at age 21 the youngest woman to be elected to a state
legislature at the time.
Gabbard supports abortion rights, opposed the Trans-Pacific Partnership, has called for a restoration of the Glass–Steagall Act, and has been in
favor of same-sex marriage since 2012. She opposes US-led regime-change wars like those in Iraq, Libya, and Syria, and has opposed US-led removal of
Bashar al-Assad from power, arguing that US regime-change intervention in Syria's civil war is a source of the Syrian refugee crisis.
