U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii announced Sunday that she will resign as vice-chair of the Democratic National Committee and endorse Bernie Sanders for president.
"I think it's most important for us, as we look at our choices as to who our next commander in chief will be, is to recognize the necessity to have a commander in chief who has foresight, who exercises good judgment," Gabbard said on MSNBC's "Meet the Press."
Over the course of the campaign, Sanders and his supporters have accused the DNC of having a pro-Hillary Clinton—pro-establishment—bias. Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz served as one of Clinton's national campaign co-chairs in 2008.Hawaii US Rep @TulsiGabbard says she backs @BernieSanders because she respects his approach to foreign policy and avoiding unnecessary wars.
