After leaving the Democratic Party with a scorched-earth statement blasting the “elitist cabal of warmongers” in Washington, D.C., former Hawaii congresswoman and presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard will campaign for Trump-endorsed New Hampshire Senate candidate Gen. Don Bolduc
The Bolduc campaign announced Wednesday that Gabbard will join the GOP candidate and “barnstorm the Granite State,” with a schedule of events forthcoming.
“We don’t agree on every issue, but I am honored to have the support of Tulsi Gabbard who shares my view that the status quo is broken, and we need a change of direction,” Bolduc said in a statement.
“Tulsi is a fellow change agent and independent-minded outsider willing to speak truth to power. I am going to spend every day between now and election day building a wide coalition of supporters that includes Republicans, independents and even disaffected Democrats who know that Senator Hassan is a career politician and must be retired,” he added.
Bolduc, a retired Army general who beat the establishment-supported state Sen. Chuck Morse in the Republican primary last month, has generated controversy by questioning the results of the 2020 presidential election. After winning the primary, he told Fox News hosts Bill Hemmer and Dana Perino, “I have come to the conclusion, and I want to be definitive on this, the election was not stolen.”
Incumbent Sen. Maggie Hassan (D-N.H.) has led Bolduc in polls since the primary by an average of 5.8 percentage points. But a recent Trafalgar Group survey found Hassan leading 48% to Bolduc’s 45%, showing that the race remains tight and Hassan vulnerable.
