Swimmer Riley Gaines, an outspoken advocate against transgender athletes in women’s sports, has officially endorsed Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for president.
Speaking with Eric Bolling of Newsmax, Gaines began her endorsement of Ron DeSantis by recalling the extremism pushed by the Biden administration on the issues of gender ideology, citing herself as a victim, given that a male swimmer beat her in the NCAA championship.
“First of all, as a young woman, I just want to share just how I’ve been affected by this gender ideology propaganda that’s being pushed across this country,” she began. “I really understand the threat that we as Americans are under just based off my own experience and being forced to compete and change in a locker room with a male.”
