Right After Tulsi Gabbard Reaches Previous Requirement, DNC Changes Debate Rules

by David Lindfield

It was recently announced that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) has updated debate guidelines, which impacts the ability of Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) to participate in the next debate.

A candidate must have earned at least 20 percent of the pledged delegates allotted thus far in order to participate in the next debate on March 15th.

This eliminates Gabbard because she currently has won two delegates.

Previously, the debate requirement was to allow candidates to participate if he or she had a single pledged delegate. Now the DNC has changed its requirements.

Joe Biden has won the most delegates at 664. Sen. Bernie Sanders surpasses the 20 percent mark with 573 delegates.

DNC Communications Director Xochitl Hinojosa signaled this week that a change in requirements was imminent.

“We have two more debates– of course the threshold will go up,” Hinojosa said on Tuesday.

“By the time we have the March debate, almost 2,000 delegates will be allocated. The threshold will reflect where we are in the race, as it always has,” she added:

Gabbard has repeatedly reminded members of the media that, despite a lack of coverage of her campaign, she remains in the race. On Tuesday, she highlighted a Fox News segement featuring Karl Rove, who suggested that Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), who has since dropped out of the race, was the only woman left in the Democrat primary.

[email protected] I’m not quite sure why you’re telling FOX viewers that Elizabeth Warren is the last female candidate in the Dem primary,” Gabbard said. “Is it because you believe a fake indigenous woman of color is ‘real’ and the real indigenous woman of color in this race is fake?”:

Despite a different flavor in terms of their left-wing views, Gabbard has common ground with Sanders, whose supporters have also cried foul over what they say is a primary rigged against their candidate at the hands of both establishment Democrats and media.
