North Las Vegas mayor John Lee leaves Democratic Party to join GOP

After being elected as a Democrat, North Las Vegas Mayor John Lee said on ‘Fox & Friends’ Tuesday that he’s switching to the Republican Party. Lee argued the Democrats’ “elitist” and “socialist” agenda is not one he “can stand with anymore.”

MAYOR JOHN LEE said:

They had an election recently for leadership, and four of the five people were card-carrying members of the Socialist 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 anymore…

The working class, or working men and women of this country, and also the small business owners are not a part of the conversation anymore. It all has to do with the elitists and it has to do with the socialists. That is not the agenda that I have in mind for this country of 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 anymore. 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.

Here’s the interview with North Las Vegas mayor John Lee:
