The Democrat Party is bankrupt. They have no message. All of their 2020 candidates blow, and they just put on a horrifically damaging impeachment circus that caused Trump’s approval ratings to go up.
The party has been hijacked by far-left kooks who are calling the shots now and that has turned many “moderate” Dems off.
Case in point – a member of the Pennsylvania State Senate has just announced that he’s leaving the Dem party to become an Independent so he can caucus with Republicans.
State Sen. John Yudichak, who was re-elected in 2018 to a third term representing a district that flipped to President Trump in 2016, announced his departure from the Democrat Party this week. Yudichak said that he is tired of “purist” politicians who “demand that you choose a battle camp (radicals and the outrage mobs). He goes on to say that you must “pass their litmus test, and declare if you support ‘us,’ or ‘them,’”
Good for him! Let’s hope more people follow!!
His Twitter account is below – please take a minute to send him a message of thanks and support.
The 49-year-old, who represents Pennsylvania’s 14th district in the northeastern part of the state, will be up for re-election in 2022 and his switch brings the state’s minority Democratic caucus from 22 to 21.
“As an Independent, I will continue to put people above politics,” Yudichak said. “I will continue to support Democratic ideas as well as Republican ideas when it is clear that they serve the greater good and help government work for people rather than the narrow interests of partisan purists.”
Registering as an independent is the only way I can faithfully and fully serve the people of Northeastern Pennsylvania who have blessed me with the opportunity to serve them. https://t.co/VYsYQuSTrA

“Registering as an independent is the only way I can faithfully and fully serve the people of Northeastern Pennsylvania who have blessed me with the opportunity to serve them,” Yudichak said.
“Throughout my career, I have worked to build relationships across political ideologies and regional boundaries. I am an ardent supporter of working families and the unions that built the middle class. I stand with legal professionals who use our justice system to protect the rights of citizens against the powerful,” he wrote in his statement. “I support our chambers of commerce that help small businesses grow and set the stage for corporations to create private-sector jobs. And, I am for finding a balance between protecting our environment and supporting a diverse, robust energy industry in Pennsylvania.”
But, the senator felt that the increasingly liberal Democrat Party left him and his constituents feeling “marginalized” but asserted that he would “continue to support Democratic ideas as well as Republican ideas when it is clear that they serve the greater good and help government work for people rather than the narrow interests of partisan ‘purists.’” [Bizpacreview]
