Presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard campaigning in Utah this weekend

(Kristopher Radder | The Brattleboro Reformer/AP) Democratic presidential candidate U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, of Hawaii, seen here at a town hall meeting in Keene, N.H., on Jan. 21, 2020, will hold four campaign events in Utah, from Feb. 21 to 23, 2020.

In the same week that former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg are campaigning in Salt Lake City, another Democratic presidential hopeful — Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard — is visiting Utah.

Gabbard is holding four events over the weekend in Utah, according to her campaign website. At each event, people can ask questions and get photos.

The events are:

• A “meet the candidate” event Friday, 1:30 to 3 p.m., at the University of Utah’s Hinckley Institute of Politics, 260 Campus Center Drive, Salt Lake City.

• A town hall Friday night, from 6:30 to 8 p.m., at Pierpont Place, 163 W. Pierpont Ave., Salt Lake City.

• A town hall Saturday, from 4 to 5:30 p.m., at the Marriott Hotel, at 101 W. 100 North, Provo.

• A “snowboarding with Tulsi” meet-up Sunday, noon to 5 p.m., at Snowbird ski resort, Little Cottonwood Canyon.

Gabbard trails far behind the front-runners in the Democratic presidential race in recent nationwide polling. She got 1% in an ABC News/Washington Post poll released Wednesday, and received zero percent in a poll released Wednesday by The Hill/HarrisX.

Gabbard received 3.3% of the votes in the New Hampshire primary last week, placing seventh. She did not qualify for Wednesday’s presidential debate in Las Vegas.
