    Eight Republicans in state races have switched to Democratic Party this year

    Politicians fight over seats in the life boat while fleeing a sinking ship.
    The Republican Neo-fascist Party slowly disintegrating before November.
    An aside: Slick Rick Santorum had two neo-con drones set up a card table with Repug flags flying here in my home town at the local shopping center today..
    Nobody wanted to talk to these disgusting fat pigs however.

    Republicans, Democrats voice opinions on switching parties

    Eight Republicans in state races have switched to Democratic Party this year


    Many were shocked when Governor Kathleen Sebelius announced her running mate, former Chairman of the State Republican Party, Mark Parkinson.

    Four years ago when Sebelius chose John Moore, also a former Republican, as her lieutenant governor, Parkinson criticized that decision, something he has since apologized for.

    “I want to be the very first to stand in front of you and say I was wrong,” Parkinson said.

    Now, it's the current Republican Party leadership's turn to criticize the most recent switches, like that of Attorney General Candidate Paul Morrison. He's currently the Johnson County District Attorney, a job he won running as a Republican.

    “Paul Morrison waited until he until got a four-year term and once he was in that term said now I'm a Democrat,” said David Kensinger, Shawnee County Republican Party. “That's what he chose to do. I think anybody who does that is essentially saying what they told voters wasn't true.”

    But Morrison said the position he's running for, Kansas Attorney General, is not a partisan role.

    “I've never heard anybody say there was a Republican or Democratic way to fight crime or to prosecute a criminal,” he said.

    And across the state, six other candidates, all running for a seat in the Kansas House of Representatives, have also made the switch.

    “It tends to show that most people are moderate,” Morrison said. “I believe most people are sort of in the middle in their thinking and I think the Democratic Party has a great allure in that regard now.”

    And, we'll find out just how well the party-switchers fared after the general election in November.

    The one thing I would be afraid of with Repugs switching parties is that they may still have a chance to influence things in the democratic party if they are elected. As we can observe, people switch sides whenever it's convenient. Whoever is the winner is the bandwagon those will jump on.

    I agree, it is not likely they will change in any substantive way. They will probably retain loyalty to repuglican party BS
    What is significant is that this is Kansas, a Rep stronghold, and declaring to be Republican even in this state is being perceived by some politicians as career suicide.
    It may also be an indication that some moderate republicans are now refusing to be associated with Bush and his policies.
