Lifelong Republican who became a Democrat in 2015 to run for West Virginia Governor (and won), is switching back to being a Republican.
Gov. Jim Justice announced he’s joining the Republican Party during a rally with President Donald Trump on Thursday evening. Justice was elected as a Democrat in 2016, defeating Republican Bill Cole.Yeah, seems like a great idea.
“Today I’ll tell you, as West Virginians, I can’t help you anymore being a Democrat governor,” he said during his remarks at Trump’s rally. “So tomorrow, I will be changing my registration to Republican.” Link
