Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, a four-term congresswoman who in 2012 became the first Hindu elected to Congress, has suspended her long-shot campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination.

She made the announcement in a video posted to Twitter today.  The 38-year old candidate was the second youngest contender in the race after former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg. She also offered her “full support” to Biden in the video.  

Gabbard had repeatedly clashed with the Democratic National Committee over their presidential nomination debate criteria which prevented the congresswoman and many of her rivals from making the stage.

In the most recent caucuse contests in  the past two weeks, Gabbard often won fewer votes than candidates who had already departed the race.  She won just two delegates in the nomination race with both coming from her native American Samoa.

She also said she won’t run for re-election to her current House seat.
