Ex-DNC Official Says She Was Warned Against Breaking from Clinton
Tulsi Gabbard resigned from her leadership post with the Democratic National Committee last week in order to officially endorse Bernie Sanders.
Gabbard later told the media that she was advised not to oppose Hillary Clinton.
“I’ll be very honest with you, a lot of people warned me against doing what I did,” the lawmaker told MSNBC on Tuesday night.
“But this is a very serious issue and what I did speaks to the high stakes that exist. War is a very real thing, its real to me, it’s real to our service members and their families.”
The Hill reports:
Gabbard, a veteran, made her surprise decision during a Sunday interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” Her response on Tuesday came after MSNBC’s Brian Williams asked her if she’s worried about what her life in Congress would be like if Clinton wins.
She warned Clinton’s record indicates her leadership would include a future of “more interventionist wars and regime change.”
The former first lady won seven states on Super Tuesday, while Sanders won four, a result that will extend Clinton’s delegate lead.
