ABC News: Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard — a 2020 presidential candidate — continues to elicit mixed reactions from fellow politicians following her decision last week not to take a side during the House’s formal impeachment vote against President Donald Trump, instead voting “present.”
The disapproval list now includes former Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie.
“When she just showed up, and then voted ‘present,’ I thought, ‘wait a minute, you know, that’s, that’s, that’s a step too far.’” He said Gabbard should resign “the sooner the better” to allow for more time for a special election to be held.
Abercrombie also serves as co-chair of Hawaii State Sen. Kai Kahele’s campaign to replace Gabbard in Congress.
“The people of the second district are being adversely affected by her presidential campaign,” Abercrombie said of Gabbard. “And so if she offers the opportunity then for a special election, I think then she’s showing respect for the people of the second district and respect for the people of Hawaii.”
