West Virginia Governor Announces He'll Switch To GOP At Trump Rally

West Virginia Governor Announces He'll Switch To GOP At Trump Rally West Virginia Governor Announces He'll Switch To GOP At Trump Rally

Other Trump supporters didn't mind that the president barely mentioned the opioid crisis and that the major announcement at the rally was instead about the state's governor switching his party affiliation from Democrat to Republican. His legislative agenda, meanwhile, has the inauspicious prospects of his hometown New York Knicks.

Justice won in November after he ran as a conservative Democrat.

Trump visited West Virginia last week as well, when he touted his electoral college win and criticized his predecessor, former President Barack Obama, before the Boy Scouts of America at a national jamboree.

What other Democrats might follow Justice's lead?

The governor is expected to publicly announce his decision Thursday evening at a campaign rally with the president.

Trump also seemed to narrow the scope of his defense against the allegations, now that it is known that his son Donald Jr., son-in-law Jared Kushner and former campaign chairman Paul Manafort met a year ago with a Russian attorney said to have incriminating material against Clinton provided by the Russian government. "This man and myself are not politicians".

Flynn's amended filing comes about six months after he was ousted from the White House for misleading the vice president about conversations he had with the then-Russian ambassador to the U.S. It also comes as special counsel Robert Mueller and congressional committees are scrutinizing Flynn's business deals and foreign connections.

Justice also made a point to dismiss the veracity of the Russian Federation probes.

But national Republicans cheered the move.

The news would not have been timed for last night unless there was a Trump factor, and earlier in the day Trump teased reporters in Washington, telling them a big announcement was coming. "Having Big Jim as a Republican is such an honor", the President told the crowd. "The Russia story is total fabrication".

Justice's defection disappointed Sen. It also puts a spotlight on Sen. He was elected in 2014. Across the street from the arena, Rep. Evan Jenkins, R-W.Va., staged a micro-campaign event hours before the rally, while Attorney General Patrick Morrisey and laid-off coal miner Bo Copley shook hands among the sea of "MAGA"-hatted Trump supporters". In a statement Thursday, Manchin insisted he would not join the governor in switching parties.

Some West Virginia Republicans, however, said they would welcome the Governor to their party with open arms.

"West Virginia is taking its rightful place", Leonhardt said, "and president Trump...is certainly helping". Cummings says Kian told federal investigators in 2016 that Flynn had work relationships with foreign businesses.

"We're pleased that the governor has come to the realization that the strong conservative leadership of the Republican Party is working for West Virginia".
