Gabbard Fails To Qualify For Debate She Boycotted; Others May Spurn It, Too

Hawaii Congresswoman and presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard tweeted earlier this week that she won’t attend the next Democratic National Committee debate scheduled for Dec. 19 in Los Angeles in protest. As it turns out, she didn’t qualify.

Gabbard failed to meet the requirements to reach 6 percent in two polls conducted in the early nominating states and 4 percent in four polls run in nominating states or nationally. Only seven candidates made the cut: former Vice President Joe Biden, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, businessman Andrew Yang and environmental activist Tom Steyer.
