— Rep. Tulsi Gabbard said she will not run as an independent candidate if she fails to win the Democratic presidential nomination.

"I will not," the Hawaii Democrat told CNN's Jim Scuitto on "Newsroom" Thursday. "No, I have ruled that out."

Gabbard has not qualified for the next Democratic debate in September after making the first two debates.
