Christian Rep. Thompson Switches Parties
March 21, 2023 | Louisiana
The Democratic drift to the left has led to a history-making political event in Louisiana.
Citing the incompatibility of Democratic Party positions with his Christian faith, formerly Democratic state Rep. Francis Thompson announced Friday he will change parties and join the GOP.
Thompson’s party switch gives Louisiana Republicans a supermajority in the state’s House for the first time in the state’s 210-year history, according to Newsweek. (Excerpt from The Western Journal.)
