John Lee is the mayor of North Las Vegas in Nevada and until recently, he was a Democrat.
Lee has switched parties and become a Republican because he says that the Democrats have been taken over by the far left and are socialists.
It’s hard to argue with that.
The Federalist reports:
North Las Vegas Mayor Switches To Republican Party Over Democrats’ Progressive Lurch
North Las Vegas Mayor John Lee left the Democratic Party this week and registered Republican in the first major party switch of the Biden era.
Lee announced his decision on “Fox and Friends” Tuesday morning.
“Here in Nevada, we’ve seen the full takeover of the Democratic Party by admitted socialists,” Lee said. “I will not let the America I love be hijacked by an extremist left-wing mob that blacklists, bans, shouts down, and cancels anyone who disagrees with them,” Lee said…
Lee told The Federalist that in Nevada the Democratic Party recently elected devout socialists to four out of five board positions which served as a catalyst for his decision to finally make the switch.
“It’s gone. The cancel culture has wiped you out … Whatever Democratic Party I thought I was associated with was not the party that just came in,” Lee told The Federalist. “If it’s happening in Nevada, it’s happening everywhere.”

Republicans should welcome Mayor Lee.
Today, I switched political parties. The Democratic Party is broken. It’s time to bring people together to get things done. It’s time to stop shouting and start solving problems. pic.twitter.com/PUDf5frc5D

North Las Vegas Mayor John Lee said the party has changed from a party of the working class to a party of “socialists” and “elitists.”

Lee is right about the Democrats. They have changed and not for the better.
