In the coming weeks, California Senator Kamala Harris, New Jersey Senator Cory Booker and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders will be announcing their candidature.
Gabbard asserted her main issue would be ‘war and peace’, but she will also push for climate change, will work on the criminal justice system and provide healthcare to all Americans.
