The mayor of North Las Vegas has made the switch from the Democratic party to the Republican party after the latest election saw all socialists win and they then selected radical so0cialist leaders, leaving regular Democrats like Mayor John Lee out in the cold. it was too much for him and he pulled the trigger on the change of party.
He already was pro-life and pro-gun and held beliefs similar to Republicans, but he had been a lifelong Democrat.
“In the Democratic Party of Nevada, they had an election recently for leadership, and four of the five people were card-carrying members of the socialistic [sic] party. It’s not the party that I grew up with 25 years ago in this environment, and it’s not the party I can stand with any more.”
Lee was referring to elections for statewide officers in the party. The socialists put forth a slate of candidates and most of them won, taking over the heart and soul of the Democratic party in Nevada.
“The working class, the working men and women of this country and also the small business owners are not a part of the conversation any more. It all has to do with the elitists and it all has to do with the socialists. That is not the agenda that I have in mind for this country or the future.”
“When you’re a pro-life Democrat, a pro-gun Democrat, and you’re a very conservative person, that’s not really well known in the Democratic Party any more. And so for me to hang on as long as I did, hoping the party would change, it didn’t, it got worse.”
“So therefore, I found a new place that I can put my allegiance to and help. Once again, forget about the last eight years. It’s the next four years that predict the future.”
One has to wonder if this will drive more elected officials from the Democratic party but I seriously doubt it because this is where the entire party is headed as witnessed by Biden’s radical agenda.
Even more moderate Democrats with a lust for power will hold out and just go with the flow.
