Two days before the general election, congressional candidate Tulsi Gabbard has garnered a high-level endorsement from President Barack Obama.
Gabbard faces Republican Kawika Crowley in Tuesday’s election.
Obama issued a statement saying, “America’s middle class needs Tulsi Gabbard in Congress to stand up and fight for them. Tulsi will create jobs here at home by building from the middle out, not the top down. She will protect Medicare for our seniors and education for our next generation. Middle class families can count on Tulsi Gabbard and she needs their support on Election Day.”
Gabbard welcomed the president’s support and said she looks forward to working with him “to improve our economy, get our troops out of Afghanistan as quickly and safely as possible, and work for the well-being of all of our people.”
