Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) appears to have been excluded from the Democrat’s new presidential election advertisement.

In a video sent out by the Democratic Party’s official Twitter account on Monday, followers are urged to donate to the Democratic National Committee’s (DNC) Unity Fund.

“With less than a year until November 3, 2020, we must come together now and work towards the common goal of defeating Donald Trump and sending a Democrat to the White House,” the tweet states.

The video features commentary from 10 candidates including frontrunners former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) as well as Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Mayor Pete Buttigieg, and entrepreneur Andrew Yang.

Gabbard, however, is nowhere to be seen. The apparent discrepancy was quickly noticed by supporters of Gabbard who accused the DNC of purposefully excluding the candidate.

“Democrats have excluded a woman of color and Hindu candidate from this ad,” Twitter user @TULSI20203 wrote.
