Party Switch

A former state Dem. Party chairman switched to the Republican Party this week, which makes for a big story down here. Even the N&O had to cover the story, though they approached it from the DNC talking points angle. Their quotes focused on Christian beliefs and abortion, so this was just another defection of another religious fanatic. No quotes about taxes or the need for smaller government or state corruption in the Democratic Party - just those pesky religious beliefs caused this guy to switch!
