The inclusion of Gabbard, who left the Democratic Party on Tuesday, bumps former Republican Vice President Mike Pence down to the fourth spot

The inclusion of Gabbard, who left the Democratic Party on Tuesday, bumps former Republican Vice President Mike Pence down to the fourth spot 

Gabbard, who left Congress in 2021, announced Tuesday that she was leaving the Democratic Party, charging that her former colleagues were ‘under the complete control of an elitist cabal of warmongers driven by cowardly wokeness.’ 

She blasted Democrats for ‘racializing every issue’ and stoking ‘anti-white racism.’ 

And said they were ‘hostile’ to people of faith and demonized the police. 

Gabbard ended her statement by saying that Democrats were ‘dragging us ever closer to nuclear war.’ 

Her announcement was met with excitement by a number of figures on the right, welcoming her to the fold. 

Republican New Hampshire Senate hopeful Don Bolduc, for instance, said Wednesday that Gabbard would be joining him soon on the campaign trail in his bid to unseat Democratic incumbent Sen. Maggie Hassan. 

Gabbard had already become a frequent guest on Fox News’ airwaves and appeared in February at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference

Elected in 2012, Gabbard spent her early years in Congress leading the Congressional Future Caucus with former Republican Rep. Aaron Schock – an effort to work across the aisle and make politics less partisan. 

In 2016, Gabbard seemingly joined the left-wing of her party when she left a Democratic National Committee post to campaign for Sen. Bernie Sanders, who she felt the DNC too heavily favored in his presidential campaign against eventual Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. 

In 2020, she launched her own presidential bid, vying for the Democratic nomination against Sanders, President Joe Biden and others. 

That bid garnered a lot of attention, but only two delegates. 

She eventually endorsed Biden, but was not invited to speak at the 2020 Democratic Convention – a snub only afforded to Gabbard, and not any of the other Democratic primary candidates who ran against the now-president. 

During her 2020 run, Clinton suggested Gabbard was a Russian asset, which inspired Gabbard to file a defamation lawsuit against the former secretary of state. 

The lawsuit was later dropped.
