Democrats Suffer Crippling Loss in Southern State – GOP Flip Just Landed the Party a 70-Vote Supermajority in LA

What’s Happening:

We’ve seen how Democrat policies have been driving Americans out of blue states. This mass exodus has depleted state populations. Several liberal states have actually lost enough residents that their seats in the House have gone down. And this exodus hasn’t stopped, as Democrats embrace pro-criminal, anti-American policies.

But there is another exodus that has Democrats panicking. As Joe Biden torches the middle, propping up the radical left, members of his own party are outraged. We’ve seen several key Democrats leave the party, depriving them of power. Now, one more state Democrat is leaving. And he just gave Republicans a supermajority.

From Just the News:

A Louisiana Democratic lawmaker has left the party and plans to register as a Republican, marking the latest in a string of defections that have handed Republicans greater power in key state legislatures.

State Rep. Jeremy LaCombe became the second Democrat in the state legislature to leave the party this year, The Advocate reported.

Louisiana Democrats Rep. Jeremy LaCombe and Rep. Francis Thompson have ditched the party. Thanks to their switching to the GOP, Republicans now have a 70-vote supermajority in the state legislature.

This is a painful blow to the Democratic Party. It means they do not have the voting power to stop any Republican bills that are put forward. The GOP has the power to aggressively advance conservative bills, ensuring they keep Louisiana as red as they can get it.

Just last week, a Democrat in North Carolina defected. And this comes after Sen. Kyrsten Sinema left the Democratic Party in the Senate. In recent years, several Democratic politicians have either left the party or joined the GOP.

Funny, you rarely see it going the other way! It’s almost as if Democrats and their puppet Biden are doing so poorly, that politicians can’t wait until they can ditch them. Joe Biden has presided over numerous crises that have hurt the U.S. economy and national security.

State Democrats have supported policies that defunded police and led to surges in crime. Not to mention painful lockdowns that crippled local economies.

Key Takeaways:

  • More Democrats are ditching the party to become Republicans.
  • Louisiana lawmaker Jeremy LaCombe left the party to become a Republican.
  • With Rep. Francis Thompson, the two gave Republicans a 70-vote supermajority.
