Tulsi Gabbard Endorses Joe Biden for President as She Drops Out of Democratic Primary

"I'm suspending my presidential campaign and offering my full support to Vice President Joe Biden in his quest to bring our country together," said the Hawaii congresswoman.

Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard dropped out of the 2020 Democratic presidential race on Thursday and immediately threw her support behind former Vice President Joe Biden, voicing confidence that he can "help heal the divisiveness that has been tearing our country apart."

Gabbard had several strong debate moments—including her blistering critique of Sen. Kamala Harris' (D-Calif.) prosecutorial record in July—but her longshot presidential bid failed to garner widespread support.

"Although I may not agree with the vice president on every issue, I know that he has a good heart and he's motivated by his love for our country and the American people," Gabbard said in a video posted to Twitter. "I'm confident that he will lead our country guided by the spirit of aloha, respect, and compassion."
