Presidential hopeful Tulsi Gabbard was the most searched candidate during the opening evening of the first Democratic debate. Despite viewer interest, Gabbard received less speaking time than most of the other candidates. The congresswoman recently appeared on Fox News with Tucker Carlson to discuss the debate and her campaign.

Tucker Carlson and Gabbard see eye-to-eye and numerous political issues, particularly foreign policy. The Democrat has appeared on Carlson’s popular television program in the past, and her conversations with the Fox host are notably cordial. Carlson is notorious for his often combative interviews with guests.

The interview began with Carlson identifying Gabbard as the only veteran on the stage at the first night of the debate. He went on to berate the other candidates for continuing to advocate for a military presence in Afghanistan. Like Carlson, Gabbard supports a full military withdrawal from Afghanistan.

Gabbard has represented Hawaii’s 2nd congressional district in the US House of Representatives since 2013. She served in Iraq from 2004 to 2005 with the Hawaii Army National Guard as part of a field medical unit. The 38-year-old politician has earned a reputation for her staunch opposition to foreign military intervention in the Middle East.

According to the Real Clear Politics average, Gabbard is the 9th highest polling Democratic candidate of the 20 featured in the first debate. During the debate, her sister tweeted criticism of the debate moderators from the congresswoman’s account. Gabbard’s also recently tweeted a clip from her latest appearance on Tucker Carlson’s program.
