STOUFFER CAMPAIGN RESPONDS TO THE NEWS TODAY THAT AN ALABAMA DEMOCRATIC CONGRESSMAN SWITCHES PARTIES
WILL CONGRESSMAN SKELTON SEE THE WRITING ON THE WALL AND RETIRE?
Democrat Parker Griffith, a freshman Democrat from AL-5, today announced he was leaving the Democratic Party because of its liberal agenda and joining the Republican Party.
Statement from Christian Morgan, spokesman for Stouffer for Congress, on Griffith joining the GOP:
“I know all rural Missouri Republicans will join me today in welcoming Congressman Griffith to the Republican Caucus in Congress,” said Morgan. “Congressman Griffith in a press conference today announced his reasons for leaving the Democratic Party were many, but paramount was his belief that Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats’ agenda in Congress is just too liberal and far from the mainstream. I wonder what Ike Skelton thinks about members of his Democrat Caucus in Congress leaving the Party to join the mainstream Republicans standing against Cap and Trade, socialized medicine and bailouts for all. Mr. Skelton should address the current state of his Democrat Party and Leadership to the people of rural Missouri. Mr. Skelton has to see the writing on the wall in Washington and in rural Missouri – he and his Democratic Party’s views on issues are bad for this country, bad for Missouri and should lead to Mr. Skelton’s retirement from Congress.”
