The Democrats just keep losing. On Thursday night, this Governor announced he’s switching his party affiliation. And his reason is awesome.
West Virginia Governor Jim Justice told a packed house that he is no longer going to serve the people of his state as a Democrat.
He said that he’s met with President Trump over the past few weeks and has brought some ideas forward about encouraging US manufacturing and supporting the coal industry.
He discussed how he supports the President.
“This man and myself are not politicians,” he began. “We ran to get something done. We ran and gave up part of our lives. We ran because we want nothing. We ran, as our Founding Fathers did, to serve.”
Justice began by telling the rally goers that he “tried with all his soul” during the last session of legislature, but there was “way too much pain.”
“We hurt a lot of people,” he expressed. “We hurt our vets,and our teachers, and our disabled, and our weak, and we walked away from the old.”
Justice said that he became Governor to get something done, and felt his hands were tied by the Democrats.
He said that he didn’t leave the party, the Democratic Party walked away from him.
He’s not the only one that has felt the Left has left them.
“Today I tell you as West Virginians- I can’t help you anymore being a Democrat governor,” Justice stated. “So tomorrow, I will be changing my registration to Republican.”
Justice then said that his Reagan-loving parents were in heaven saying, ‘Jimmy, It’s about damned time that you came to your senses.‘
He then said what most people are saying — ‘Haven’t we heard enough about the Russians?‘
Justice cited the historic high of the stock market, and that this country has hope.
Watch the announcement made in West Virginia at the 12:00 mark:
As of this announcement, there are current gubernatorial status in the United States is 34 Republican, 15 Democratic, and 1 Independent.
That’s part of the great Obama legacy.
Great work, Barry!
