"I have made a decision to run and will be making a formal announcement within the next week", the HawaiiDemocrattold CNN's Van Jones during an interview slated to air at 7 p.m. Saturday on CNN's "The Van Jones Show".
Gabbard's declaration follows a December 12 appearance on MSNBC's "Hardball" in which she said she was "seriously considering" a presidential run.
"'I have chose to run and will be making a formal announcement within the next week", she said on the show, which airs Saturday.
A victor of the primary elections beginning early 2020 would be finally nominated by the Democratic party in its convention later that summer to challenge the Republican candidate in the November 2020 elections.
The Hawaii Democrat said there were "a lot of reasons" behind her decision to run and named some of the top issues that would be on her campaign platform, including health care, criminal justice reform and climate change.
She has also courted controversy by picking a fight with Hawaii Sen.
The congresswoman recently found herself publicly sparring with a fellow Hawaii Democrat, Sen.
That same year, as a vice chair of the Democratic National Committee, Gabbard criticized the party's handling of the presidential primary. Gabbard remains popular with some liberals but will have serious competition with other candidates on the left flank of the party. Gabbard didn't use any names, but the description applied to questions asked by Senators Hirono and Harris.
2019 iPhones’ big feature will be an extra camera lens
That led Apple to aggressively market the iPhone XR on its website for $449, about $300 less than its official sticker price. If Apple does go down this route, it wouldn't be the first smartphone manufacturer to do so.
Gabbard recalls that she found the meeting encouraging. Rania Batrice, who was a deputy campaign manager for Bernie Sanders in 2016 and is now a top aide to Gabbard, will be her campaign manager, CNN reported. Her participation in the race will raise the profile of some important issues, for which libertarians should be glad.
She's also reached across the aisle to work with libertarian-minded Republicans like Sen. Clinton ultimately won the Democratic nomination but lost to Trump. That led to more critical attention to Gabbard's foreign policy views, though a few months into the Trump administration, she rejected praise from the president and his allies. In 2017 she received criticism for meeting with Bashar al-Assad.
"Hey @realdonaldtrump: being Saudi Arabia's bitch is not "America First," Gabbard tweeted. "Liberals think she's too conservative, conservatives think she's too liberal, and just about everyone thinks her coziness with Bashar al-Assad is disturbing", said Ahrens.
