Gabbard Says CNN Hasnt Told Her Why She Didnt Get Invited to 2020 Town Halls

Democratic presidential contender Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) said she hasnt been told why she was excluded from CNNs upcoming town halls with presidential candidates.

“We have reached out, I think more than once, and we received no explanation. I dont even think weve gotten a response to date about why theyre excluding the first female combat veteran ever to run for president, the only woman of color in the race … were still waiting for an answer,” Gabbard told Fox News while campaigning in New Hampshire.

“Its really a disservice to voters in New Hampshire and across the country to not allow them the opportunity to hear from, myself included with the other candidates as we head into election day.”

CNN last week announced town halls with eight Democratic presidential candidates across two nights in New Hampshire. The Feb. 5 and Feb. 6 town halls are just before voters in the state head to the polls on Feb. 11.
