A Georgia First: Black Democrat Leaves Party to Join Republicans

Georgia Unfiltered reports on Hall County Commissioner Ashley Bell who:
announced his decision to join with the Republican Party of Georgia, making him the known first African-American elected official in Georgia to leave the Democratic Party.

“After consulting with family my conscience leads me to determine that the Democratic Party is no longer aligned with my core beliefs,” Bell said. “In short, my personal convictions and conservative beliefs fit comfortably within the Republican Party. That’s why I have made my decision to officially become a Republican.”
A rather ominous sign for the Democrat party.
