North Las Vegas Mayor John Lee switched parties, citing that he could no longer support the Democrat’s socialist agenda.
“They had an election recently for leadership, and four of the five people were card-carrying members of the Socialist Party,” said Lee during an appearance of Fox & Friends. “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,” continued Lee. “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,” said Lee. “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.”
