HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Ideas of U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard saying she would run for vice president have been swirling, but the congresswoman is clarifying that she would simply consider running if she were asked by a presidential nominee.
When asked by the Garden Island newspaper if she would be willing to run for vice president in the 2016 election, she responded, "I would, because the question that I've always asked myself is, where can I be in a position to make the most positive impact? That's what motivated me to run for office at 21."
However, she told Hawaii News Now she would consider it if she were asked by a presidential nominee, but she said no one has asked yet.
Gabbard is 34 years old, but will meet the minimum age requirement, which is 35, to fill the position by the 2016 election.
