ICYMI – West Virginia is starting to turn redder with each passing day.
As Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) fights to keep his seat, a state senator has decided to flip parties.
State Senator Glenn Jeffries announced he is leaving the Democrat Party.
Time for Change
Jeffries does not like the direction the Democrat Party is going, so he is jumping ship.
He stated, “I have the greatest respect for the many friends and supporters I have been blessed with during my time in public office.
“I hope to continue and strengthen those relationships going forward.
“Our politics have gotten so personal and difficult.
“I want to make sure that I serve constituents and our state in a respectful, thoughtful way that leads to a better life for all West Virginians.”
Whether he goes Republican or not is irrelevant at this point, however.
The Republican Party is dominating the Senate in West Virginia.
The important thing here is that Democrats have lost yet another seat in a state the Republican Party would love to take over.
