Conservative Democrats Join the Republican Party in Texas - Texas Scorecard

As Republicans are taking over the State governments of Virginia and New Jersey, many Texas Democrats are leaving their party and joining the Republican Party.

According to the Republican Party of Texas: “Today in Hardin County, seven Democrats announced that they are switching parties to become Republicans. The new Republicans include Sheriff Ed Cain, County Judge Billy Caraway and Precinct 4 Commissioner Bobby Franklin. And at noon Tuesday in Palo Pinto County, Precinct 5 Justice of the Peace Bobby Hart switched his party affiliation and became a Republican.”

These are all supposedly ‘conservative’ Democrats who say the Democrat party has left them. I’m not sure why it took them so long to realize this, but I’m glad to see it happening. Hopefully they will remain true to the principles of conservatism and fight for smaller government, lower taxes, and fiscal responsibility. We’ll just have to wait and see.
