Texas State Representative Ryan Guillen had been a longtime Democrat, but his colleagues started to notice something strange about him last year.
He seemed to be gaining more and more common sense, eventually being labelled “the least liberal Democrat in the Texas House” in 2020.
Well, now he isn’t the most anything Democrat anymore. Because he’s seen the light.
Texas Governor Greg Abbot joked about the switch, saying he was glad Ryan “finally came out of the closet.”
Guillen told voters: “Friends, something is happening in South Texas, and many of us are waking up to the fact that the values of those in Washington, D.C., are not our values, not the values of most Texans,” Guillen said. “The ideology of defunding the police, of destroying the oil and gas industry and the chaos at our border is disastrous for those of us who live here in South Texas.”
Looks like the bottom line is that the Democrats in Washington were doing so much harm to the people that Guillen represents, that he could no longer in good conscience stay in allegiance with them.
Thanks for joining us, Ryan Guillen. Welcome back to America.
