Finally, a Democrat has come to their senses.
With the Democratic platform crumbling, and ultimately failing to serve the needs of the American people, the political left is rapidly falling apart.
But now, at a rally hosted by President Trump in West Virginia, West Virginia Governor Jim Justice revealed he was ready to switch his political affiliation after his party failed him.
Justice claimed that his party had “walked away from him,” and praised the efforts of President Trump to truly make America great again.
Justice said, “[I]n the last session, I would tell you that there was some greatness passed, with our roads and so on, but there was way too much pain. Now listen to me and listen really good, we hurt a lot of people. We hurt our vets and our teachers and our disabled and our weak and we walked away from the old. Now I can promise you just this, I came to only get something done. Let me just say this to you as bluntly as I can say it, West Virginia, at the altar, when we had it done, like it or not like it, but the Democrats walked away from me. Now, today I will tell you, with lots of prayers and lots of thinking, today I’ll tell you as West Virginians, I can’t help you anymore being a Democrat governor. So tomorrow, I will be changing my registration to Republican.”
He added, “Now let me go one step further and say just this, what in the world is wrong us as peoples? Have we not heard enough about the Russians? I mean, to our God in heaven above think about it, the stock market’s at 22,000. And this country has hope. And we’re on our way.”
Justice also stated, “He [Trump] has made us, as common, everyday Americans, feel good and be proud of who we are.”
Justice’s announcement was met with thunderous applause at the Trump event.
The West Virginia Governor relayed that he was unable to get anything done with his Democrat colleagues due to the disheveled state of his political party.
Moreover, with a Republican majority in the West Virginia House of Delegates, Justice has been unable to pass any pertinent legislation due to the discord and lack of cooperation of Democrats to back him.
The Washington Times reports:
He said that in order to take care of the state and address issues like the opioid epidemic, unemployment or the poverty rate he needs to be a Republican. Mr. Justice said the Democrats in the House of Delegates, of which there are 36 compared to 64 Republicans, couldn’t come together with him on any issue.
“It’s just simply this, the people that are in office, those 36 people, dropped the ball,” he said. “And I don’t have any confidence that I’m going to be able to get those 36 people to stay … united and everything if I were to remain a Democrat.”
Reporters later followed with questions regarding Justice’s political future.
Jim Justice, while fully in support of the Trump administration, relayed that he had no intentions of taking a future position in the White House.
Do you believe that Governor Justice will be a strong ally to Republicans?
Or do you believe his is simply trying to maintain his position in politics by switching to the Republican Party?
