Gabbard was the first Hindu member of Congress and also the first Samoan-American voting member of Congress.

In 2002, Gabbard was elected to the Hawaii House of Representatives at the age of 21.[4] Gabbard served in a field medical unit of the Hawaii Army National Guard while deployed to Iraq from 2004 to 2005.

During her time in Congress, she frequently appeared on Fox News to criticize the Barack Obama administration for "refusing" to say that the "real enemy" of the United States is "radical Islam" or "Islamic extremism".

In 2015, Gabbard married freelance cinematographer and editor Abraham Williams.

Williams is known today as a cinematographer who specializes in film. Over the years, he has worked on several projects, including White Guys: P.I., Lahi, The Ace, God for Broke, and Anton Chekhov's The Proposal.

But today Tulsi Gabbard announces she's leaving Democratic Party.
