The Hill reports:
Democratic presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) says she’s received no explanation or response from CNN regarding not being invited to a series of town halls the network is hosting in New Hampshire days before a crucial primary there in February.
Gabbard is currently polling 4.8 percent in the RealClearPolitics index of polls in New Hampshire, ahead of tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang, businessman Tom Steyer and former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick.
Yang, Steyer and Patrick, along with former Vice President Joe Biden, Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass), Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn) and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg, all received invites to participate in the two-night event.
Asked about not being invited to the @CNN town halls next week in NH, @TulsiGabbard tells @foxnewspolitics “we received no explanation. I don’t even think we’ve gotten a response to date about why they’re excluding the first female combat veteran ever to run for president” #FITN pic.twitter.com/njxusUoXWt
