The far-right Washington Times reports:
Seven candidates won at least one pledged delegate in the 2020 Democratic presidential primaries. Six gave speeches at the virtual convention this week; the seventh was Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii.
Ms. Gabbard said Thursday evening that the convention snubbed her, contrary to the longstanding custom for unsuccessful presidential contenders. “You’re correct – I was not invited to participate in any way,” she wrote in response to a Twitter user who noted the discrepancy.
Gabbard is not seeking reelection to her House seat. That’s a shame. Independent thinking is likely to be in short supply when the 117th Congress is seated.
Gabbard voted “present” on Trump’s impeachment.
You’re correct – I was not invited to participate in any way. https://t.co/zQBOQB8Zw7
