Tulsi Gabbard Passes Key Hurdle: Will Participate in Democratic Debates

Tulsi Gabbard
Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard’s campaign for President announced on Wednesday that it has surpassed the threshold of 65,000 unique donors required to join the Democratic debates. 

“Thanks to all of the support from so many in every state across the country, our voice will be heard in the debates," she stated in response to making it over the hurdle and added, "We stand strong for what the American people want and need...leaders who will not drag us into one regime change war after another, inflaming the new Cold War and nuclear arms race, that has been and will continue to drain trillions of dollars from our economy, threatening our communities, nation and planet.” 

On December 20, 2018, Tom Perez, the chairman for the Democratic National Committee, announced the preliminary schedule for a series of official debates, set to begin in June 2019. In order to qualify, debate entrants must either attain 1% in three polls — at the national level or the first four primary states (Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, and South Carolina) — or by meeting a fundraising threshold, in which a candidate must receive donations from 65,000 unique donors, with at least 200 unique donors per state in at least 20 states.
