Gabbard tapped to speak at Democratic National Convention


POSTED:


U.S. House candidate Tulsi Gabbard plans to speak at the Democratic National Convention next week.

Campaign officials for the 31-year-old veteran likely to win in Hawaii’s 2nd Congressional District in November say Gabbard will be part of a segment led by House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi.

The segment is titled “The Women of the House,” and includes six congresswomen and two candidates, including Gabbard.

Gabbard says she plans to speak about the sacrifices of military members, including women. 

She says she’s looking forward to sharing Hawaii’s aloha with others.

Gabbard resigned from her post at the Honolulu City Council this month after winning the Democratic primary for the House race. She’s expected to easily win in November against a Republican candidate with no significant backing.
