Gabbard, a 37-year-old combat veteran, did very little to conceal his presidential ambitions, he recently made a stop in Iowa and New Hampshire and hired digital staff and writers of speeches and also wrote a memoir released in May.

The entrance of the Democrat to the Hawaii in the primary presidential camp first comes a wave of similar announcements from candidates of higher profile.

A recent survey on Democracy for America by members of the Liberal Group found that about 2 % has said that Gabbard should run, behind potential potential competitors of 2020 as Senator Bernie Sanders or Mer Vice President Joe Biden.

Within his party, the three-member congressman is considered an anti-conformist with a penchant for the bankrupt party's orthodoxy. During the 2016 presidential election, Gabbard resigned from his position as vice president of the National Democratic Committee, so as to support Sanders, making her one of the few Democratic MPs to support the Vermont senator on Hillary Clinton during the primaries. She has since been associated with the Sanders movement – in her re-election campaign in 2018, she was approved by Sanders' external group The Revolution.

Former Massachusetts senator Paul G. Kirk, who was a substitute for Sanders alongside Gabbard in 2016, said it is likely that several candidates who support Sanders in 2016 will enter the field.

"From my point of view, your race has less to do with those who have supported in 2016 what they feel for the country and what direction and vision it has and how it can make the difference," said Kirk. Kirk added that he would be surprised if "there are others who may have supported Sanders who think they have a good opportunity".

During the 2016 presidential transition period, the Hawaii Democrat met with then elected President Donald Trump, condemning his fellow Democrats. He also received numerous criticisms in 2017 for the meeting with the Syrian dictator Bashar Assad.

"There are many reasons for making this decision," Gabbard told Jones, "there are many challenges facing the American people I'm worried about and wanting to help solve." He emphasized access to health care, reform of criminal justice and climate change.

"There is a main issue that is central to the rest, and this is the question of war and peace," he said. "I can not wait to be able to get into this and talk deeply about it when we make our announcement."

Gabbard will become part of a field that already includes former representative John Delaney of Maryland. Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, who will travel to New Hampshire this weekend, announced the formation of a presidential exploratory committee on New Year's Eve. Also Julian Castro, former mayor of San Antonio and former Secretary for housing and urban development, has set up an exploratory committee. He has an event scheduled for Saturday in his hometown, where he is expected to formally announce his candidacy.
