“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,” says former Hawaii Democrat congresswoman.

Former presidential candidate and ex-Democrat Tulsi Gabbard endorsed Arizona’s Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake on Monday, claiming she’ll take on the “warmongering elitist cabal” in Washington, D.C. and its “propagandists in the mainstream media.”

In a statement posted to Twitter and Truth Social on Tuesday, the former Hawaii congresswoman, who abandoned the Democrat Party last week over its extreme woke agenda, claimed Lake’s policies will “actually make life better and more affordable” for Americans.

“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 stated Tuesday.

“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.”

“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,” she added.

Lake responded to the news on Twitter, calling “American hero” Gabbard’s endorsement “an honor.”

This comes a week after Gabbard renounced the Democrat Party, claiming it’s now “under the complete control of an elitist cabal of warmongers driven by cowardly wokeness” who are “dragging us ever closer to nuclear war.”

“If you can no longer stomach the direction that so-called woke Democratic Party ideologues are taking our country, I invite you to join me,” she stated.

Gabbard will campaign for Lake and Senate candidate Blake Masters (R) on Tuesday evening at 7:30 PM in Phoenix.
