Gabbard moves to New Hampshire ahead of primary

CNN

Democratic presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) said she is renting a small house in Manchester, N.H., ahead of the state’s February primary.

“We had a town hall in Rochester and then in Gilford right before the storm hit, and people said, ‘You must be getting out of town,’ and nope, we’re here for the duration,” Gabbard told local ABC affiliate WMUR

In the interview published Wednesday, Gabbard said she’s used to Hawaii’s 80-degree Christmas weather, but said it was fun to experience New Hampshire’s first snowfall of the year. 

Gabbard tweeted a picture Tuesday of her doing yoga with the snowstorm in the background. 

Her move to New Hampshire signals that her campaign is putting its attention on the second voting state while many other campaigns are still focused on Iowa ahead of the February caucuses. 

Gabbard is fifth in the race among New Hampshire voters, based on a RealClearPolitics average of polls in the state. She has 5 percent support, based on the average, trailing South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg by 15 points. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and former Vice President Joe Biden (D) also rank ahead of her, based on the average.
