Since leaving the Democrat Party last week, former Congresswoman and presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard is now making campaign stops for Republicans. Gabbard will be in Virginia this Saturday when she will join VA-07 Republican nominee Yesli Vega for a get-out-the-vote rally in Triangle, VA.
Currently, Gabbard is in the midst of a several-day swing through the key electoral state of New Hampshire. To start off the day, she is appearing at an event for Karoline Leavitt, the Republican nominee in New Hampshire’s 1st Congressional District where the two will discuss the “energy crisis impacting New Hampshire Residents.”
Following this morning’s appearance with Leavitt, Gabbard will jet off to Arizona. There, she will speak at an event with gubernatorial nominee Kari Lake and Senate nominee Blake Masters in Chandler, AZ this evening.
During her time in New Hampshire, Gabbard has also campaigned with the Granite State’s Republican Senate nominee, General Don Bolduc.

The New Hampshire Journal reported that Bolduc called Gabbard “a fellow change agent and independent-minded outsider willing to speak truth to power” at an event held earlier this week.
Gabbard shared on Twitter this weekend that she was supporting Bolduc because “our fundamental freedoms are under attack” and she “has no doubt that he will do all he can to stand up to those in Washington who seek to undermine our God-given civil liberties enshrined in the Constitution.”
…our fundamental freedoms are under attack, I have no doubt he will do all he can to stand up to those in Washington who seek to undermine our God-given civil liberties enshrined in the Constitution. That’s why I’m supporting Don Bolduc and I ask you to do the same.— Tulsi Gabbard 🌺 (@TulsiGabbard) October 16, 2022
Later next week, Gabbard is listed as a fundraiser headliner for United States Senate candidate and current Congressman Markwayne Mullin in Oklahoma.
The Oklahoma campaign stop – at least – will be for a longtime personal friend. Mullin and Gabbard have enjoyed a friendship for years, since they both served in the United States House of Representatives and were part of a bipartisan congressional workout group, dating back as far as 2014.
Editors Note: Vega’s campaign did not respond to The Republican Standard’s requests for comment on the event with Gabbard.
