WASHINGTON (AP) - Hawaii congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard is suspending her presidential campaign, ending a long-shot 2020 effort that saw her feuding with Hillary Clinton and raising fears among Democrats that she would mount a third-party candidacy.


She's offering her full support to Joe Biden.

Gabbard attracted a sizable following in New Hampshire but largely failed to resonate elsewhere. Gabbard publicly feuded with Clinton during her 2020 run and ended up suing her for defamation.

Democrats have feared she would mount a third-party run for the presidency, potentially siphoning votes away from the eventual Democratic nominee. But Gabbard has said she isn't considering that.
