On Friday, even organizers said 1200 people have already signed up.
Political analysts said Representative Gabbard winning this race is a long shot.
But Dr. John Hart, and HPU professor of communications said she still has many reasons to run.
"She's going to run. She's going to get her name out there. She's going to raise money. She's going to put that in her campaign coffers, She's going to pay her staff with it. There's a lot of reasons for her to run," explained Hart.
Event organizers said the launch will be casual and local style with Gabbard coming together with her supporters to connect and talk story.
