Democratic Mayor Leaves Party After Democrats Lean Towards Socialism

(ReliableNews.org) – When President Joe Biden ran for the White House, Republicans warned that he was being pulled to the Left. That’s exactly what happened when he won the election and took office. As the party becomes more radical, some old school Democrats are having a hard time swallowing it. That’s what led to a stunning decision by one member of the party.

On April 6, North Las Vegas Mayor John Lee spoke to the hosts of “Fox & Friends” about the state of the Democratic Party and made a huge announcement. He said that he could no longer “stand with” his party after four out of five Democrats who won leadership positions in Nevada were “card-carrying members of the Socialist party.” He said the GOP is the party of the “working class” and that’s where he wants to be.

A number of Democrats have admitted to having Socialist ideals. Senator Bernie Sanders (VT) who is an Independent but caucuses with the Democrats and runs under their banner when he has sought the presidency calls himself a Democratic-Socialist. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has made similar statements. And as the party moves further left, a large swath of Democrats are wondering if the party is right for them anymore.
