Tulsi Gabbard represented Hawaii's second district for four terms in the House of Representatives. What is her net worth? Here are details on her career.
Former House of Representatives member Tulsi Gabbard has been a lifelong Democrat, representing Hawaii's second district between 2013 and 2021, and even running for president of the United States in 2020 before ending her campaign to endorse Joe Biden.
However, Gabbard, who has had her share of controversy, recently announced on Twitter that she is leaving the Democratic Party.
"I can no longer remain in today’s Democratic Party that is under the complete control of an elitist cabal of warmongers who are driven by cowardly wokeness, who divide us by racializing every issue and stoking anti-white racism," she said.
So, how much is Gabbard worth today, and what is her current political affiliation? Keep reading to find out.
Before politics, Gabbard had a career in the military.
Gabbard served in the United States Army, enlisting in the Hawaii Army National Guard in 2003. She has received the Combat Medical Badge and the Meritorious Service Medal.
Gabbard also worked in two units — United States Army Civil Affairs and Psychological Operations Command and the United States Army Reserve — and also served in the Iraq War.
Gabbard became a member of the House of Representatives in 2002 and at age 21 she was officially the youngest person elected to office on Hawaii's behalf.
However, her exit from the Democratic Party is not a huge shock, given some of her past comments. In 2015, she criticized the Obama administration for refusing to label the Islamic states and their beliefs as "Islamic extremism" and "radical Islam."
More recently, she criticized President Joe Biden for escalating tensions with Russia and "not caring about the American people."
"Permanent Washington loots us to serve the interests of the arms-manufacturing global oligarchy while we struggle to pay for gas/food/rent and our soldiers go on food stamps," she tweeted.
Gabbard has not shared a new political affiliation, but she did attend the Conservative Political Action Committee earlier this year.
