Tulsi Gabbard the first Hindu American presidency in 2020



Tulsi Gabbard, the first Hindu lawmaker in the US Congress, and now she is considering to run for American presidency in 2020.
On Friday, at a Medtronic conference in Los Angeles an eminent Indian-American, Dr Sampat Shivangi, introduced Tulsi Gabbard, 37, and said that she could be the next president of the United States in 2020. The brief statement was marked by a standing ovation, in the presence of the four-term Congresswoman from Hawaii.


Tulsi Gabbard, a Democrat, who addressed the gathering, however neither confirmed or denied that she is running for president in 2020.
A decision on this could be taken before Christmas, which might not necessarily result in a formal announcement as that could be delayed till the next year, people familiar with her thinking process told news agency PTI.




However, it is said that she and her team have quietly been reaching out to prospective donors, including a large number of Indian-Americans, and volunteers to build an impressive campaign for her 2020 run.

Given that Tulsi Gabbard is highly popular among Indian-Americans, a constituency she has nurtured from the very beginning of her political carrier, it is but natural that her team has quietly started reaching out to this community, which is considered as the richest ethnic group after the Jewish-Americans. And in many critical states, Indian-Americans can play an important role in her electoral chances.

If Tulsi Gabbard declares her presidential bid she would be the first Hindu candidate ever from a major political party to announce to enter the race for White House. And if elected in 2020, she could be the youngest ever and first woman to be elected as the US president.

Last week Ms Gabbard was elected for the fourth term for the US House of Representatives.
