Tulsi Gabbard Endorses Blake Masters As Arizona Race Goes Down To The Wire

 Former Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard endorsed Republican Arizona Senate nominee Blake Masters on Wednesday, her seventh Republican endorsement since leaving the Democratic Party.

“I’ve met a lot of politicians who say the right things, but then they cower in fear and vote the way they’re told in Washington. Now Mark Kelly is one of those politicians. He may tell you he’s an independent thinker, but in reality he’s just a rubber stamp for Joe Biden and Chuck Schumer. Blake Masters is the real deal,” Gabbard said in a video posted to Twitter.

“For too long the political establishment has been deeply broken, both the left and the right sides. We need new leadership, new energy in the Senate to tackle the threats our country faces,” she added, citing issues like big tech and crime. 

Gabbard announced in October that she was leaving the Democratic Party due to its control by an “elitist cabal of warmongers” who promote “anti-white racism.” Since then, she has endorsed Senate candidates Adam Laxalt in Nevada and JD Vance in Ohio, gubernatorial candidates Kari Lake in Arizona and Darren Bailey in Illinois, and congressional candidates Joe Kent in Washington and Tom Barrett in Michigan.

Masters has expressed some heterodox policy views, arguing that Americans should be able to raise their families on a single income and favoring more robust antitrust enforcement. On the other hand, he also mulled privatizing Social Security during the Republican primary before walking the position back.

The Republican challenger is running within the margin of error in his race against incumbent Democratic Sen. Mark Kelly, several recent polls have shown. Kelly has significantly out-raised Masters, whose campaign has been buoyed by outside advertising from conservative political action committees like the Sentinel Action Fund and Club For Growth Action.
