Watch Powerful Sanders Ad: Veteran and Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard - 'Bernie Sanders Understands the Cost of War'

Last month, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard endorsed Bernie Sanders' presidential bid upon resignation of her role as vice-chair of the Democratic National Committee. Tulsi Gabbard has been the U.S. Representative for Hawaii's 2nd congressional district since 2013. She is also one of the first female combat veterans to serve in the United States Congress. 
“Being a warrior is about believing in what you are fighting for and holding strong to those convictions,” Rep. Tulsi Gabbard says. “I could not stay back in beautiful Hawaii and watch my brothers and sisters in uniform go off into combat.” 
The Cost of War is a reminder to voters from Gabbard about Bernie Sanders’ record in the senate and his understanding of everyday Americans. 
“Bernie Sanders voted against the Iraq war,” Gabbard tells us. “He understands the cost of war—that that cost is continued—when our veterans come home. Bernie Sanders will defend our country and take the trillions of dollars that are spent on these interventionist regime change, unnecessary wars and invest it here at home. The American people are not looking to settle for inches. They’re looking for real change. What I saw in Bernie was the heart of aloha. No matter who you are or where you come from in this country, we are all in this together.” 
The Hawaii Democratic caucus is on today.
