West Virgina governor, Jim Justice dumps Democratic for Republican Party

West Virgina governor, Jim Justice dumps Democratic for Republican Party

The rally was Trump's second visit to West Virginia in two weeks.

Trump invited Justice to the stage to share his announcement.

That being said, if Trump can strengthen his relationship with Republican Congressional leadership and work with them on making his case directly to the American people, bypassing mainstream media outlets who were never going to give him a fair shake anyway, then Trump could snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. "Do you understand? Large". Justice, who has publicly spoken about his friendship with the Trump family, hosted Donald Trump Jr. for turkey hunting and trout fishing earlier this year. I think more people are here with thousands outside than I had in the campaign. "Listen to me and listen good".

"It just makes them feel better when they have nothing else to talk about", he said. He said he hadn't heard anything before Thursday except for rumors of the switch.

He said that instead of looking at his campaign, prosecutors should be looking into his Democratic opponent from past year, Hillary Clinton, and her deletion of email from a private server she maintained while secretary of state.

Anti-Trump protesters gathered at the Huntington venue last night chanted, "Jim Justice is a traitor". But even though the rally probably cheered him up, and served as a reminder to Republicans on Capitol Hill that he still has some fervent supporters, the appearance did little to address the dual problems he faces. "These are very basic principles in the Republican party and I would hope that. he will embrace those principles and we can work together".

Republican Senate President Mitch Carmichael says he's not surprised the governor chose to return to the GOP. In a statement, Carmichael said he is pleased with Justice's decision. In Feb. 2015, Justice left the Republican party to become a Democrat, according to the Wall Street Journal.

As a result, he seems to acquire some “lady luck” which puts the brakes on his ability to spoil the games of others. The success of Ocean’s 11 has led to the development of a new spin-off, Oceans 8 which is due to be released in 2018.

This is not the first time Justice has switched parties. We don't want government in our lives.

In a statement after the announcement, Republican Governors Association Chairman Scott Walker, the governor of Wisconsin, welcomed Justice to the party. "The debts have only worsened during Justice's term as governor". "West Virginians have learned that they simply can't trust Jim Justice".

West Virginia Republicans were caught completely off-guard. As you've seen, I've kept that promise. But Democrats were still taken aback by the announcement.

U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin also said he was disappointed with Justice's decision.

Justice's first six months in office was highlighted with major budget and finance disagreements with the Republican-controlled Legislature.

"I can definitely understand why there's so much debate over the issue, because it truly affects everybody".

John Dowd, Trump's lead outside lawyer, said Thursday that he was not aware of Mueller's reported move to impanel a new grand jury in D.C., but said he was confident that the president was not a target of prosecutors. "Pursuing Republican policies is what makes a person a Republican". "That ultimately is what I, any elected official, and Governor Justice will be judged on by the voters and history". Shelley Moore Capito, R-Wood, said. Now today I will tell you, with lots of prayers and lots of thinking. And maybe this will help that. "He doesn't want anybody to know what he's done and most importantly, I'm here to protest him not observing the rule of law and shaming democracy".
