RuPaul has just released a new PSA, praising gubernatorial candidate Gavin Newsom for his lifelong work on behalf of the LGBTQ community and officially endorses him in the June 5th primary.
In the spot, Ru appears with the (incredibly handsome) current Lt Governor, standing on the Drag Race runway.
“Gavin is a person who changed the course of history for LGBT Americans. Back in 2004, He was the first mayor in the country to marry same-sex couples. That courageous decision jump-started the marriage equality movement.”
She goes on to say:
“And he’s been on the front lines of so many important fights — from fighting for LGBT youth to standing up to the NRA to even legalizing marijuana here in California. You heard that right henny — LEGAL WEED. As Governor, he will stand up to the hate coming from the white house and fight for all our communities.”
Gavin graciously responds to Ru’s praise:
“Ru, I’m truly grateful to your support. I hope all of you can get out there and vote on June 5th!”Ru: That’s right. If you don’t vote, you lose the right to complain. So, you better vote!”
And then, if all that wasn’t cute enough, and he hasn’t completely won you over yet, Lt Governor Newsom breaks into a spontaneous chant of “Miss Vaaaaaaaajie” and COMPLETELY cracks Ru up.
So you heard it straight from Mother’s mouth: We’re going with Gavin for Governor!
Seventy-five percent of eligible residents have already registered to vote – the highest percentage entering a gubernatorial primary in the last 64 years, according to state elections officials. So let’s send them Republicans packing, hennies.
VOTE, BABY, VOTE!
