If elected, Gabbard, now 37 years old, would become the youngest president in U.S. history — President Theodore Roosevelt was 42 years old when he took office in 1901.
Here’s more on Gabbard’s political and financial history:
• Gabbard’s estimated net worth, $208,504, made her the 346th wealthiest House member in 2015, according to the most recent estimates available from the Center for Responsive Politics.
• The Americans United for Separation of Church and State in 2018 reported spending $600 to honor Gabbard, U.S. Rep. Jared Huffman, a California Democrat, and U.S. Sen. Mazie Hirono, a Hawaii Democrat, with an award for those who have shown “a deep level of respect for the nonreligious community.”
• Gabbard married Abraham Williams, described as a freelance cinematographer, in 2015. In 2016, House ethics officials granted her a gift waiver for gifts associated with her engagement and wedding.
• Tulsi for Hawai’i, Gabbard’s campaign committee, raised $1.4 million during the 2018 election cycle, according to the Federal Election Commission. Contributions from California made up the largest block of contributions of $200 or more, according to the FEC — 18.5 percent of the total.
• Gabbard’s leadership PAC spread $8,700 among seven Democratic candidates during the 2017-2018 election cycle, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, including $1,000 to Kyrsten Sinema, a Democratic U.S. House member who won a U.S. Senate seat in Arizona.
• Differentiating herself from many Sanders supporters, Gabbard in 2016 met with President-elect Donald Trump because of their similar views on immigration and handling of terrorist threats. She later admonished then-Trump aide Steve Bannon for his analysis of her politics.
