“Good judgment”

Congresswoman resigns from Democratic National Committee to stump for Sanders

By WITW Staff on February 29, 2016

On Sunday, Democratic National Committee Vice Chair Tulsi Gabbard resigned from her post as representative of Hawaii to endorse Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, claiming she could not take sides as tensions rose within the group in recent months. On NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Gabbard said, “I think it’s most important for us, as we look at our choices as to who our next commander in chief will be, to recognize the necessity to have a commander in chief who has foresight, who exercises good judgment.”

As a veteran, Gabbard said Sanders’s stand on military intervention is important, “So that we don’t continue to find ourselves in these failures that have resulted in chaos in the Middle East and so much loss of life.”
