Democrat North Las Vegas Mayor Switches Parties, Cites the Party’s Embrace of Socialism
North Las Vegas Mayor John Lee is switching his political affiliation from Democrat to Republican, due to his former party’s open embrace of socialism.
Lee announced his switch during an appearance on Fox and Friends on Tuesday.
“In the Democratic Party of Nevada, they had an election recently for leadership, and four of the five people were card-carrying members of the socialistic party,” Lee said. “It’s not the party that I grew up with 25 years ago in this environment, and it’s not the party that I can stand with anymore.”
