(Democ)Rats fleeing the ship
This guy, Rep. Parker Griffith, barely won his seat last year in a northern Alabama district considered safe for Democrats, is now the first Republican to hold that district.
He is a doctor, a radiation oncologist, and stated his opposition to ObamaCare as the prime reason to switch. Hopefully, he can drag a few of his buddies with him. He has been strongly criticized by his Democrat colleagues for his conservative voting records. Perhaps we should call him a DINO!
He was also unhappy with the administrations decision to scrap the missile defense system for eastern Europe, as his district includes Huntsville, home of many military contractors. Particularly the base for Boeing’s ground-based missile defense research.
