Tulsi Gabbard has just endorsed Kari Lake for Governor of Arizona. Gabbard, who left the Democratic Party last week, said that Lake “puts people first, is fighting for border security, energy independence, public safety, and other policies that actually make life better and more affordable for the American people.”
Gabbard left the Democrats in large part due to the push from the Biden administration toward further engaging in war with Russia on behalf of Ukraine.
“For too long establishment leaders from both parties have sought to enrich themselves, play games, and build up their power while ignoring and even enabling the suffering of millions of hard-working Americans,” Gabbard said.
“Kari Lake is a leader who puts people first, is fighting for border security, energy independence, public safety, and other policies that actually make life better and more affordable for the American people,” Gabbard's statement read. “Kari Lake isn't afraid to call out the warmongering elitist cabal of permanent Washington and the Military Industrial Complex, and their propagandists in the mainstream media.”
“I look forward to supporting @KariLake ahead of these critical midterm elections,” Gabbard said.
Lake, endorsed by former President Donald Trump, has captured the imagination of many across the US. A former media anchor who supported Obama, Lake has crossed over to the side that bucks against the authoritarian takeover of the US by the Biden admiration and their friends in big tech.
