HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - It’s still early in the race for the White House in 2020, but Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard continues to face more negative publicity.
Politico, an online source for political current events, published a report based on sources saying that Gabbard’s campaign is in “disarray” amid personnel changes.
The site says manager Rania Batrice and her consulting firm, Revolution Messaging, is departing ways with Gabbard, and her campaign is “melting down.”
But Gabbard’s spokesperson says that’s simply not true.
She says her campaign manager is a friend, who will continue to advise her, and the consulting firm had a contract that’s due to expire.
Gabbard’s campaign hasn’t officially kicked off, but she did tell CNN she decided to run over two weeks ago.
Hawaii News Now previously uncovered controversial anti-LGBT campaigns that Gabbard was a part of years ago, but she says her opinions have since changed.
She is planning a rally to launch her presidential bid in Honolulu this Saturday.
