ALCOHOLICS AND DRUG ADDICTS CAN RECOVER! NOW EVEN DEMOCRATS!!!!
Arizona State Senator Carlyle Begay, a Navajo (who also call themselves Diné) whose district includes Navajo and Hopi tribal lands, announced Monday that he is switching to the Republican Party.
Begay, 34, was appointed to the Arizona Senate in 2013 as a Democrat and re-elected in 2014.
In a moving video, Begay describes his Native American roots and the desperate conditions and challenges his constituents face. “This is not how our distinguished ancestors saw our future,” he said. “Change must happen now.”
Praising the GOP for working with him to improve conditions for his constituents, Begay said that his decision “will not be popular for some.”
“I clearly see the Republican Party as a party of progress, the party of opportunity, and moving forward, my party,” the video concludes.
With this up-and-coming young legislator’s addition, Republicans now control 18 of 30 seats in the Arizona upper chamber.
