Tulsi Gabbard succeeded in House by Afghan war veteran

Gabbard, a Democrat from Hawaii who served in the Army in Iraq and ran for president in 2020, has been a critic of the US prosecution of "endless wars." Her successor, Democrat Kai Kahele, served in Afghanistan.

The seat of Tulsi Gabbard, known for her vocal criticism of US Syria policy, will be filled by another Democrat in the House of Representatives in January.

Kai Kahele won the election to represent Hawaii’s 2nd Congressional district. Gabbard did not seek reelection in 2020, but did run for president in the Democratic Party presidential primaries, where she received two delegates.
