Every rational Democrat Party voter should do the same.
Card-carrying socialists have completely hijacked the Democratic Party here in Nevada. Today on @foxandfriends I announced my decision to switch to the Republican Party – the party of freedom, opportunity, and hope.

Nevada Mayor Leaves Democrat Party: They Have ‘Extremist Agenda’, GOP Is Working Class Party Of Opportunity, Hope, Freedom
By Daily Wire, April 6, 2021
North Las Vegas Mayor John Lee announced on Tuesday morning that he has left the Democratic Party after a “socialist” takeover of the party in the state of Nevada and has joined the Republican Party because he believes it is the party of the working class, opportunity, and freedom.
Lee made the announcement on his campaign website and then joined Fox News’s “FOX & Friends” to discuss it, saying that the Democratic Party is run by “card-carrying socialists” in the state.
The Nevada Democratic Party “had an election recently for leadership, and four of the five people were card carrying members of the Socialist 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 I can stand with anymore.”
Lee said that the Democratic Party has abandoned the working class and is an elitist party that does not support individual liberty.
On his campaign website, Lee said that he made the switch in his heart “a long time ago” and warned that Democrats “demands a senseless devotion to cancel culture, socialism, and anti-American values.”
Lee warned that Democrats have embraced an “extremist agenda” that is “radically” different from what the party used to be. “Their ideas hurt working class families, restrict freedom, and extinguish opportunity for millions of Americans – particularly working class minorities who deserve the chance to give their families a better life,” Lee wrote. “The Republican Party that’s emerged from President Trump’s leadership is a working class party of opportunity, freedom, and hope.”
STEVE DOOCY, FOX NEWS HOST: Our next guest says the Republican Party is the party of the working class, opportunity, and freedom. And that’s why the mayor is leaving the Democratic Party for the Republican Party. And North Las Vegas Mayor John Lee joins us right now. Mayor, good morning to you.
JOHN LEE, NORTH LAS VEGAS MAYOR: Good morning, Steve, nice to see you.
DOOCY: It’s nice to see you as well. You say the Democratic Party is now being run by admitted socialists and that’s why you had to get out.
LEE: I’d say card carrying socialists and in the Democratic Party in Nevada, they had an election recently for leadership, and four of the five people were card carrying members of the Socialist Party. 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.
DOOCY: And the Democratic Party you grew up with was the party of the working class. But you don’t see that anymore.
LEE: No, the working class, the working men and women of this country, and also the small business owners are not a part of the conversation anymore, it all has to do with the elitist and it has to do with the socialists. That is not the agenda that I have in mind for this country and the future.
DOOCY: Yeah. Mayor, what do people out there in the Las Vegas area, think about how Joe Biden is remaking the federal government into a gigantic, much bigger jobs program?
