The equation is simple: If you love America you are a patriot and you fight for conservative values. If you hate America you side with Sleepy Joe and give up on maintaining any sense of a moral compass.
And the West Virginia state Senator, Glenn Jeffries, understood that equation and did what was necessary.
He reached his limit with the Democratic Party and joined the Republicans. Democrats were not pleased and trashed Jeffries, but he stood his ground and completed the paperwork.
Jeffries said: “I have the greatest respect for the many friends and supporters I have been blessed with during my time in public office. I hope to continue and strengthen those relationships going forward.
“Our politics have gotten so personal and difficult. I want to make sure that I serve constituents and our state in a respectful, thoughtful way that leads to a better life for all West Virginians.”
Tony Hodge, the Putnam County Republican Party Chairman and the Co-Chairman of the West Virginia Republican Party said:
“Senator Jeffries has proven himself to be a very hard worker for Putnam County. His efforts to improve infrastructure such as water and sewer services as well as road maintenance have been exemplary.
“Glenn described himself to me as a ‘conservative,’ and we agreed that his policy efforts in the State Senate would be elevated if he joined the majority Republican caucus.”
Well, of course it would. Serving others, adding value to your community, and improving American life are conservative values. He’s much better suited for the winning team.
Hodge continued, “Glenn also expressed to me his discomfort with the leftward direction of the Democratic Party and that he no longer identifies with them.”
That’s not surprising. How can you identify with a party that believes there are hundreds of genders?
“I warmly welcome Senator Glenn Jeffries into the West Virginia Republican Party,” Hodge said.
U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito said:
“It’s great to hear that West Virginia State Senator Glenn Jeffries is joining the Republican Party.
“As the senior-elected leader of West Virginia’s Grand Old Party, Glenn will be a great addition to our ranks.
“He is a proven business leader and his ongoing work in attracting new employers and opportunities to West Virginia makes him a great fit in our Republican Party.”
