West Virginia Governor Switches from Democrat to Republican at Trump Rally

Jim Justice said that the Democratic Party had left him and would no longer help West Virginia.

Gov. Jim Justice (D-WV) announced at a Donald Trump rally on Thursday night that he would be switching his party registration from Democrat to Republican.

“Today, I tell you as West Virginians, I can’t help you anymore being a Democrat governor,” Justice told the West Virginia crowd.

“Tomorrow, I will be changing my registration to Republican,” he announced to large applause from the rally.

Trump won Justice’s state by over a 40 point margin in November.
