Tulsi Enters the Roaring 2020s!!!
News aplenty for Tulsi, entering into the new numerical decade . . .
Tulsi Raises $3.4 million in Q4 2019
This was her best quarter yet.
In comparison, in Q3 she raised $3.0 million; in Q2 she raised $1.6 million; and in Q1 she raised $2.0 million.
Of course, other candidates raised more--for example, Booty-gig announced yesterday raising $25 million or thereabouts.

Tulsi on Democrats Abroad Primary Ballot
As of the turn of the year, Tulsi is now on the ballot for Democrats Abroad.
Democrats Abroad and American Samoa are two contests on SuperTuesday (March 3) where Tulsi has a really good chance of winning delegates. Democrats Abroad has 13 pledged delegates to win, American Samoa has 6 pledged delegates to win. Tulsi is half-Samoan, so hopefully she has an "in" there, especially with her strong stance on native rights, which is a huge issue for a lot of Samoans.
Other future races after SuperTuesday where Tulsi may have a better-than-average chance of scoring delegates include:
Puerto Rico (she was very visibly involved in the protests to oust the governor, 51 pledged delegates there)
North Dakota (she was very visibly involved in the Standing Rock protests, 14 pledged delegates here)
Alaska (15 pledged delegates), Montana (16 pledged delegates), Idaho (20 pledged delegates) (conservative states who have a streak of libertarianism and progressivism, and who are heavily involved in sending troops, sons and daughters, abroad in the military)
Hawaii (her home state--Tulsi remains very popular there, and there are 22 pledged delegates there)
A 15% primary result in New Hampshire would net Tulsi about 5 pledged delegates. A 15% primary result in South Carolina would net Tulsi about 9 pledged delegates.
Just starting to analyze potential delegate outcomes here! If she gets in the top 3 of either NH or SC or both, look for her to shoot upwards in popularity in other states!!!
