Democrat Mayor Switches To Republican Party
Mayor of North Las Vegas John Lee is defecting the Democratic Party to join the Republican Party. Lee claimed he became a Republican when the Democrats adopted socialism and an “Anti-American” ideology, according to a Fox News interview.
“The party moved past me. In fact, Democrats are now leaving that party in droves because of the socialist agenda that has taken place in the Democratic Party,” Lee said.
“They’re totally anti-American. There was nowhere for people who thought and felt like I did about the virtues and values and morals of being a good American. It was time to leave. They have destroyed the Democratic Party now,” he continued.
Lee has been mayor of the Nevada city since 2013.
