Democratic presidential-nomination candidate Tulsi Gabbard will take her third swing through Iowa City since announcing her campaign.

She’s will stop by Iowa City on April 16 at frozen yogurt shop Yotopia at 10:30 a.m. and will hold a meet-and-greet with veterans and Carpenters Union 1260 at 2 p.m.

Rep. Gabbard, D-Hawaii, made two stops to Iowa City in February, in which she highlighted her foreign-policy stance such as calling for an end to regime-change wars. She also said she supported legalizing marijuana and spearheading prison reform.

During her past Iowa City visits she has pointed to her experience as a veteran as a top reason she’d be a qualified commander in chief. She enlisted in the Hawaii National Guard in 2003 while serving in the Hawaii House of Representatives. Gabbard has also served on the Honolulu City Council.

She will also travel to Des Moines, Fairfield, Muscatine, Mount Pleasant, and Fort Dodge.
