WASHINGTON – The Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel released the following statement on West Virginia Governor Jim Justice joining the Republican Party:
"Governor Justice’s party switch is another blow to a Democratic Party that would rather obstruct than work to make our country great again," said Chairwoman McDaniel. "Across America, voters have put their faith in the Republican Party because we are the Party fighting to give every individual the opportunity to achieve the American Dream. With only 15 governorships and control of the fewest state legislatures in history, Governor Justice’s announcement is just the latest rejection of a party that is leaderless from top to bottom and unable to find a positive, unifying message. While Democrats continue to put politics before the American people, Republicans are working with President Trump to lead America towards a future with fewer burdensome regulations, greater economic stability, and stronger national security. Governor Justice, welcome back to the Republican Party."
