DITCHING THE DONKEY! Dallas Mayor Crosses Aisle, 'American Cities Need Republicans'

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.22.23

In a Wall Street Journal op-ed, Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson explains that he is leaving the Democratic Party because “the future of America’s great urban centers depends on the willingness of the nation’s mayors to champion law and order and practice fiscal conservatism.”

The title of the op-ed: “America’s Cities Need Republicans, and I’m Becoming One.”

“Our cities desperately need the genuine commitment to these principles (as opposed to the inconsistent, poll-driven commitment of many Democrats) that has long been a defining characteristic of the GOP,” Johnson wrote.

“In other words, American cities need Republicans—and Republicans need American cities,” Johnson continued. “When my political hero Theodore Roosevelt was born, only 20% of Americans lived in urban areas. By the time he was elected president, that share had doubled to 40%. Today, it stands at 80%. As America’s cities go, so goes America.”
