Gabbard to headline fundraiser at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort

Former Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is slated to appear at former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort next month.

According to an invitation shared exclusively with The Hill, Gabbard is set to be the keynote speaker at the 917 Society’s annual fundraiser on March 7 for a night in Palm Beach “celebrating the Constitution.”

The event comes after Trump, the current front-runner for the Republican nomination, acknowledged Gabbard is under consideration to be his vice presidential choice among several other contenders.

Dinner for the event costs $1,250, according to the invite.

Gabbard retired from Congress in 2021 after representing the Hawaii’s 2nd Congressional District. She spent much of her time in office as part of the progressive coalition, pushing further to the left than many of her liberal counterparts in the House.

Closer to the end of her career on Capitol Hill, she inched to the right and has since embraced a harder-line Republican viewpoint on some social issues, while also maintaining a Libertarian anti-interventionist approach to foreign policy.

She formally denounced the Democratic Party in 2022 by criticizing it as “elitist” and filled with “warmongers.”

Since her departure from public office, Democrats have speculated that Gabbard could make a move for a place in a potential second Trump administration, noting her harsh critique of establishment politics as aligning with the former president’s own pitch for the White House.
