Seven former democrats are now with the ranks of the republican party after making their formal switch Wednesday.
Mississippi Republican Party Chairman Joe Nosef said since democrats took control of the White House, more than 50 state and local democrats have moved to the GOP.
Leake County Sheriff Greg Waggoner is one of those making the party change. Waggoner said he feels the Democratic party has fallen out of line with the country's moral standards.
"This is enough. We've gone too far. We've gone down the road of moral decay too far. It's time to stop it. It's time to turn around and let's go back together," said Waggoner.
Also switching parties Wednesday was Jones County Justice Court Judge David Lyons, Jones County Constable Mitch Sumrall, Leake County Coroner Randolph Scott, Leake County Supervisor Tony Smith, Leake County Justice Court Judge Ken Adcock and Newton County Sheriff Jackie Knight.

Seven in one day, that’s quite a catch. There are other switches, some of which are posted in other threads.
more coming out of the closet blowback for Obama ... Im LOVING this!
The tidal wave continues...unreported but unabated.
Seven going together in one day.....How many other non-office holders are joining the numbers?
Never trust a traitor. They are switching to get republican money will still vote as rino’s
Be careful what you wish for. What is a RINO but a democrat with an “R” behind their name. These switches just move the center of the republican party to the left and corrupt it from the inside even more.
A tiger cannot change its stripes no matter what color you paint it.....
so come november as everyone is fed up with 0failure and vote straight R... they can keep their job
Winston Churchill said that a young person who is not a liberal has no heart and an old person who is not a conservative has no brain.
Do you think his assumption that experience can teach people and change their outlook is wrong?
I will gladly entertain the possibility that ex-Democrats may become more conservative. Not everybody is on auto-pilot. Some people reflect and reconsider.
Let me know when Steny Hoyer and Nancy Pelosi switch.
Then I will believe in miracles.
Seven more liberal votes for the GOP to play with not including Mitt Romney.
But HEY it's a win for the GOP!

I think Churchill said if you are 30 and not conservative . . . :)
Actually, White Mississippi Democrats have had almost nothing in common with the Democrat party for many years. We have relatives there who are both Democrat and more conservative than me—and that’s not easy. They vote R in national elections. But the local politicos are Dems and just as conservative as my relatives.
Perhaps it is Obama’s way of taking control of the Republican party. Get enough dems in it and wala.
You're so right.There aren't any Strom Thurmond-type Demonrats left in the South.
“I think Churchill said if you are 30 and not conservative . . . :)”
I think the quote is:
If you are 20 and not a liberal you don’t have a heart. If you are 30 and not a conservative you don’t have a brain.
None of ‘em are legislators.
