CONCORD, N.H. — U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, a Hawaii Democrat, combined signing up for New Hampshire’s presidential primary with standing up for survivors of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

After her visit to the secretary of state’s office Tuesday, the 2020 presidential hopeful joined a 9/11 survivor outside the New Hampshire Statehouse to repeat her call for the public release of documents she believes could tie Saudi Arabia to the 9/11 attacks.

Gabbard says the courage and strength shown by 9/11 survivors and family members speaks to leadership style she would bring to a government that currently serves the rich and powerful and puts the interests of other countries ahead of the American people.

The filing period for the first-in-the-nation primary ends Nov. 15.
