    20 Texas Democrats Desert Party, Go Republican

    Scores of Democrats across Texas like the five who have switched parties today are not so much leaving their party. Their party, its leadership in Washington and its leadership here in Texas, has left them.

    The Democratic National Party has a problem with its name and with its loyalty, and as a consequence members of the party are deserting it, in Texas at least.

    The GOP of Texas announced yesterday that 5 more officials in Upshurt Country switched from Democrat to Republican party affiliation.

    Their press release read as follows:

    We’re pleased to annouce that several more Democratic officeholders have decided to switch parties and become Republicans. Five elected Democrats in Upshur County – County Judge Dean Fowler, Sheriff Anthony Betterton, District Clerk Carolyn Bullock Parrot, Constable Jason Weeks, and Justice of the Peace Lyle Potter – all announced today that they are now Republicans and will seek re-election as such. They gave various reasons for their decisions to switch, but it all boils down to one simple fact: The Democratic Party has become too liberal and too statist for Texas voters. The Democratic Party’s values are out of the Texas mainstream. The Democratic Party is too beholden to special interests, from MoveOn’s far left agenda to Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and the Washington Democrats’ drive to have the federal government take over more and more of what was once the private sector, while they drive up the national debt to unsustainable levels and continue to raise our taxes.

    Scores of Democrats across Texas like the five who have switched parties today are not so much leaving their party. Their party, its leadership in Washington and its leadership here in Texas, has left them. We’re pleased to continue growing the Texas GOP by attracting those who share our conservative values of limited government, strong national defense and robust economic growth via the free market to join us.

    The Republicans are just as bad as the Democrats.
