    Presidential candidate U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is responding to criticism about her past work advocating against gay rights by recording a new YouTube video.

    The nearly four-minute-long video released Thursday shows Gabbard standing outdoors in the snow apologizing for statements she made that were hurtful to LGBTQ people.

    The Democratic congresswoman from Hawaii has apologized for such statements before. But she has come under renewed criticism since she announced during a CNN interview last week that she would run for president.

    Gabbard campaigned against same-sex marriage with the group Alliance for Traditional Marriage and Values when she was a state representative in her 20s. Gabbard's father founded the organization to lobby against same-sex marriage.
