North Las Vegas Mayor John Lee announced this week that he is switching parties.
Lee made the announcement on ‘Fox and Friends’ early Tuesday. Lee’s campaign claims he’s the most prominent Democratic elected official to switch parties since President Joe Biden’s inauguration.
Lee cited recent leadership changes within the Nevada Democratic Party, calling it a “Socialist takeover.” Lee’s campaign website now reflects the switch.
“Though I’ve been a registered Democrat on paper my entire life, I made the switch in my heart a long time ago, because, on some things, there’s simply no compromise,” Lee said in a statement. “That’s why I voted for President Trump twice.”
Lee also touted his A+ rating from the National Rifle Association and his pro-life and pro-2nd Amendment values.
“I found a new place where I can put my allegiance to and help once again, forget about the last eight years, its about the next four years that predict the future,” Lee said on ‘Fox and Friends.’
One of the things that he cited as a reason for leaving was the socialist takeover of the Democratic Party and how the working class is not even a part of the conversation anymore.
This is absolutely true the only thing that the Democrats care about right now is absolute control and getting everything on their little wish list. They have complete control over the Senate, the House of Representatives, the White House, and they are going to take advantage of this for as long as they can.
