West Virginia’s Governor Jim Justice announced that he was switching parties this Thursday during an appearance at President Donald Trump’s rally in Huntington, W.Va. Watch the amazing moment below.
“Today I will tell you, with lots of prayers and lots of thinking, I can’t help you anymore being a Democrat governor,” Justice said. “So tomorrow I will be changing my registration to Republican.”
Did you catch what Jim Justice said about Reince Priebus? Watch it in the video below.
This Governor’s flip shows the state’s right turn as Trump’s popularity throughout the state soars. This clip also shows the incredible moment that
Trump has promised to restore coal industry jobs and has since revived the economy of West Virginia since he took office.
This move has now blindsided the Democratic party – who is now left in control of only 15 governor’s mansions, says Politico.
Liberty Writers Reported earlier that Justice would flip earlier in the day. Apparently, West Virginia Democrats were not given any advance notice about his new party loyalties.
Share this all over the internet if you are so proud of our President and the work he has done to make the Republican party stronger.
“We are sitting here in our office, everyone of us that is capable of standing on two feet, looking at each other saying, ‘oh my goodness, did anybody see this coming?” said Steve Roberts, president of the West Virginia Chamber of Commerce. “I am surprised. However, when I worked with Gov. Justice during the last session of the legislature, I could plainly see that he is a pragmatist who is trying to get things done and is not driven by ideological or party loyalty. And he has a close connection to the Trump family and it is my hope that this will further solidify a national attention in favor of policies that will help economic development, job creation and education in West Virginia.”
Governor Justice has decided to put West Virginia first… Thank God for that. Let’s welcome this new Governor on board the Trump train.
