Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) officially launched her 2020 presidential campaign with a rally in her home state Saturday afternoon.

"We must stand against powerful politicians from both parties who sit in ivory towers thinking up new wars to wage and new places for people to die," Gabbard said in her announcement speech, which emphasized foreign policy themes. "These powerful politicians dishonor the sacrifices made by every one of our service members, and their families — they are the ones who pay the price for these wars."
