Tulsi Gabbard Officially Quits Democratic Party
(TheRedWire.com) – In 2019, then-Democratic presidential candidate and Congressional Representative Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) took on the party’s far left in a run for the White House. While she didn’t win the nomination, she successfully took down then-Senator Kamala Harris’s (D-CA) campaign after exposing her record on crime as the San Francisco district attorney. On Tuesday, October 11, Gabbard announced she was officially quitting the Democratic Party.
Since losing the nomination in 2020, the former Hawaiian congresswoman has repeatedly spoken out against the Democratic Party establishment. Now, Gabbard said she can’t remain a member of a political organization controlled by an “elitist cabal of warmongers.” She accused them of “cowardly wokeness” and said they divide Americans along racial lines by stoking anti-White racism and undermining America’s God-given freedoms.

Gabbard stressed that today’s Democratic Party doesn’t stand with the people but rather with the elite. She called on other moderate Democrats who share an independent perspective to join her and leave the party. Still, she has not announced her intention regarding whether she will join the Republicans or any other political group.
Following her announcement, former Republican Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich praised Gabbard. He said, like many, she found herself in a political environment where Democrats are unrecognizable. The former Speaker added that he believed she realized when running for president how isolated her views became in the Democratic Party, which he said Latinos are also starting to experience.
