    Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii endorsed Sen. Bernie Sanders in his bid to become President of the United States, NBC News reported.

    Gabbard made the announcement on "Meet the Press" Sunday morning and also resigned as Vice Chair of the Democratic National Committee. Just last month, she said she couldn't take sides due to her position with the DNC.

    "As a veteran, as a soldier, I've seen firsthand the true cost of war. … As we look at our choices as to who our next Commander-in-chief will be is to recognize the necessity to have a Commander-in-chief who has foresight," she said, adding that it's important to choose a president that "exercises "good judgement" so that "we don't continue to find our selves in these failures that have resulted in chaos in the Middle East and so much loss of life."
