BREAKING: North Las Vegas Mayor announces he’s switching from Democrat to Republican

North Las Vegas Mayor John Lee has announced he is switching from Democrat to Republican, citing his opposition to socialism.

“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 while appearing on Fox and Friends.

“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,” he added.
