Explanation

Erstwhile means “past” or “former,” indicating that those who are now gathering around the candidate were once doing something different — that is, criticizing, or detracting.

They are gathering around her proclaiming their “loyalty,” or fealty, in a way that is deeply inconsistent with their past actions.

Tantamount to, which means “much as the same as” or “equivalent to,” is best here.

Detractors, fealty, tantamount to.
